Collaborative - D&C/ Dazed & Confused - Music

Here i have decided to focus on the music page to look at the type of photography used to capture artists behind the scene or staged photoshoots, documenting this imagery will be good to go back to for an understanding of what kind of photography Dazed & Confused publishes.

Collaborative - D&C/ Dazed & Confused - Photography

To learn a little about Dazed & Confused i decided to look at the featured pages on the website such as fashion, music, art and culture.

Firstly i started by looking at photographers who have been featured in the magazine and on the website.

Marcelo Krasilcic

"Marcelo Krasilcic was part of a generation of photographers that moved to New York in the 1990s and he quickly became known for his spare but erotic photographs of liberated youth, artists, designers and musicians, such as Maurizio Cattelan, ChloĆ« Sevigny and Everything but the Girl – photographs that captured the spirit of the 1990s in situ. Krasilcic went on to forge an international career as a fashion photographer, portraitist and director of art, music and fashion videos."

Ed Phillips 

Another photographer featured on Dazed Digital is Ed Phillips, he shoots 'randomly at things' capturing people surfing, skateboarding or even reading books, capturing spirit and activity. 

Golden Holden 

An American photographer and web artist who shoots what ever is in someones hand, his photographers simply show people holding objects that they use every day.

Collaborative - D&C/ Dazed and Confused

Firstly i decided to gather a little background research on what Dazed & Confused is and how it came about. 

Dazed & Confused is a British style magazine that was set up in 1992 and published monthly. Its founding editors were Jefferson Hack and Rankin. The topics that are covered include music, fashion, film, art, and literature.

With the demise of both The Face and SleazenationDazed & Confused now exists alongside old rival i-D.

Beginning as a black-and-white folded poster published sporadically, the magazine soon turned full colour, promoted with London club nights.
In November 2006, Dazed launched a new web based strand of the magazine titled, which delivers fashion, film, music and art news and special online events.

They relaunched their site on September 7, 2010 under the project title "Dazed Digital REACTIVATE". With a countdown in the days prior to the relaunch, the new site did not go live until there were 10,000 simultaneous viewers; this target was reached in 22 minutes. The new site launched as first UK online publisher using an HTML5 site.
