A master at capturing the little details, Chloe Orefice is a photographer and filmmaker. Based between London and Berlin, she regularly shoots for platforms including Hunger and SHOWStudio. Orefice originally dreamt of becoming a make-up artist, only stumbling across photography after enrolling on a make-up course which happened to include a compulsory photography module. “That was my first exposure to fashion photography,” she says, “I just became hooked”. She later assisted Nick Knight for several years before striking out on her own in 2013.
A fashion week fixture, Orefice can be found capturing the many, many looks that accompany each new season. Often focusing in on the little backstage beauty details which others might miss in the pre-show frenzy, her images reveal the subtle craft and intricacies of hairstyles which, in their accompanying role to the fashion, are often overlooked. Orefice shares some of her recent hair-focused imagery and discusses what makes for the perfect hair image.
