Beautifully Blurred

Most fashion magazines today seem to prefer sharp, clean, clear images so I found it refreshing to come across the June cover shot for Elle UK:

The blurred photo of Kylie Minogue, shot by photographer David Slijper, is stunning in my opinion. The soft colors combined with the soft focus creates a unique style that has a more artistic feel than commercial. It’s interesting too that it’s featured so prominently in such a well-known magazine. I can’t remember the last time a cover photo actually made me want to stop and just really take a good long look at it. This is a cover that makes me want to buy the magazine. I would love to see more magazines branch out a bit and feature more creative cover art.
