MAGICIAN -- Focus on Mattijn Franssen ~ An Introduction to his Fictional Universe – Valerie Jardin: “I recently discovered the work of Dutch artist Mattijn Franssen. Photomontage is the technique of making a

TAKEAWAY: Fashion photography (for their creators) has to be the most “fun” category of the photography industry. The sampling portfolios often look like a Halloween costume catalog. If you like to “dress up” – this niche is the answer for your photographic desires.
