Icons – Celebrity and fashion photography duo Markus + Indrani celebrate their career of over eighteen years with a new photo book titled, “Icons”. Featuring glossy images of models, musicians and actresses such as Mariah Carey, Anne Hathaway, Kate Winslet, Beyonce, Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga; the book showcases the duo’s glamorous and fascinating style.
These famous and not so famous faces emerge from an all-white, black or neutral background with a solitary overhead light illuminating the subject. The portraits are incredibly detailed, yet aren't overly complicated. This simple yet effective set-up wouldn't be that compelling if it weren't for that extra smirk, smile or frown drawn out of the subject by the photographer Platon.
