Menswear Image-Maker: Peter Fingleton.

January 21, 2010
It never really ceases to amaze me just how much fashion-devotees hasten to deem designers their idols. Yes, they’re crafting the clothing but fashion in the broadest sense encapsulates a much greater sphere of artistic talent. I mean, I don’t think I’d care much for Dolce & Gabbana were it not for Meisel consistently working his sex-infused magic and yes, ladies, I know Alber Elbaz is the flawless-dress-designing dad you never had but without Meisel (yeah, again, he’s just that good) a Lanvin collection wouldn’t conjure up images of a spindly-limbed witch/nymph chicly creeping through the depths of some otherworldly landscape.

In other words, it’s fashion photography that’s often responsible for constructing the beauty which inevitably leaves us swooning, salivating or just plain stunned and starry-eyed.

When I heard Dublin’s finest club-photog, Peter Fingleton, had just launched a blog (about time…no one this talented should be selfish enough to keep it to themselves) I requested a few shots depicting moments of menswear magic in Dublin and beyond…

Check out Peter’s blog here and info on the weekly disco madness he’s semi-responsible for here.
