Jamie Chung Goes Out on a Limb for W
When W visualized images of Louis Vuitton bags hanging from trees, the editors tapped conceptual still photographer Jamie Chung. He shot an assortment of wildlife-themed purses and footwear in nature for an August issue spread called "Out on a Limb."
Chung and his team traveled to Millbrook, New York. "We waited until dusk and then went into the woods in search of enchanting locations and lush foliage," he said. "It's a challenge to do a studio shoot with still lifes outdoors ... we played around and found something that felt pretty natural, and took control of the elements." Feathered accessories assumed their perches amid the leaves and snakeskin items rested on the moss.
