David Sims has earned his reputation over the last ten years for his groundbreaking images that establish the aesthetic of late '90s fashion photography. His collaborations with Helmut Lang, Raf Simons, and his advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and Prada continue to set the pace for how fashion is viewed.
For this issue of Visionaire, Sims reveals a personal project that he has been working on for several years. ''I think of these roses as portraits. '' Sims explains, ''I was a pupil at the school where these roses grow...when I look at these roses close up and trace their own knocks and dents, I find a greater beauty and a complexity in their imperfections. The roses represent for me a very definite point in life and a state of mind. ''
