ICONICA : Caroline Saulnier

Introducing another one of my absolute favourite artists, the insanely and divinely talented, Caroline Saulnier.

With 25 years of experience up her sleeve, Saulnier has developed from technical excellence to conceptual visionary. She has worked successfully across editorial features and high end commercial campaigns.

Photographer - RANKIN

Saulnier’s style is classical and avant-garde in equal measure; she finds her vision through exploration of the dark and light within her personality. Unusual texture and bold pigments are experimented with frequently with amazing results; allowing the makeup to transcend itself and become a bold work of art.

I really love the collaboration with Rankin for his third book in the Beauty in Motion  series, Caroline Saulnier by Rankin, following on from his previous striking collabs with Alex Box and Ayami Nishimura.  Rankin and  Saulnier have managed to create a beauty book of stunning artistry, showcasing the talent and strong aesthetic styles of both artists in a series of sensual, visually compelling images.

In the glamorous tome, Saulnier’s astonishing work is captured by Rankin in an example of photography and makeup artistry at its finest.  The pair have a long-standing working relationship and Rankin’s individual style is instantly recognisable in the images.

‘Technically, her precision is mind-blowing. What I couldn’t know from working with her on a commercial job is that she is a creative visionary – her work is conceptually fascinating. There is a lot of sensuality in her images, as well as a real raw edge to them. Working with Caroline is inspiring.’ Rankin

Check out the wonderful short by Rankin encapsulating Saulnier’s work for the book, plus a series of still images below showcasing Saulnier’s amazing vision and talent.

I think she’s killer! Let me know your thoughts below!
