Akila Berjaoui’s (Australia) incredibly sensual photographs often feature sun, water and women —or a combination of the three. With our collection of her prints, this highly sought-after fashion photographer, armed with an array of her favourite old analogue cameras, takes us to breathtaking seaside locations, including her hometown in Australia, her beloved Italy, to France and Bali, to name just a few.
Much in the tradition of Slim Aarons, Bruce Weber, Peter Beard and Claude Nori —all of whom she regards as influences on her work—Berjaoui’s photos takes us back to the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s with their soft colours and joie de vivre. As a female photographer, Berjaoui draws out her female subjects with a sense of kinship, rather than voyeurism.
One of the world’s most in-demand photographers, Akila Berjaoui is destined to make a name for herself in the field of erotic, travel, beauty, and lifestyle photography.
