Our Legacy by Mathias Sterner



—01. A small book was printed and bound featuring the photos last month.


In some of my recent posts featuring Our Legacy's spring collection you'll notice I've used slightly different product shots than usual. These photos are a part of the brand's spring campaign which was shot by their friend and photographer, Mathias Sterner. The photographs capture the items in their natural habits: lived in, beautifully lit spaces. The shots are rich in color, texture and a mood that gives the products a different feeling, one that is more interesting and human, as if the person is just out of frame or in another room. Mathias has worked for a number of publications including Apartamento, Monocle and Pig. His shots have a great consistency and nice feel to them, full of character and great light.

So good. Great idea, and really well executed. I think it's a great aesthetic fit for the brand too, and I'm looking forward to trying to get a copy of that book.

Lovely shots. I would really love to own the publication. I really enjoy how this brand presents it's products and aesthetic.

Glad to see a focus on presentation in addition to the product features.

These shots are lovely & dreamy. It's always nice to see someone taking a different approach to look-books.

come on for f::k sake these are lovely photos but have nothing to do with showing the product, the photographers ego has over taken what he should be producing - good photography, like an object, should first function and then deal with aesthetics - these are reminiscent of the lovely images in vitra's catalogues, the difference being the furniture on show is always paramount to the over all image. If these are his only photos shame! if these were only a selection then shame on inventory for their narrow selection (and sorry for the rant to that said photographer)
