Nirrimi Hakanson is not your average fashion photographer. She is a sixteen-year-old aspiring photographer aching to take the world by hurricane, thunder and rainstorm. Photography took her hands and led her to a personal paradise at only age thirteen, and ever since she has been self-taught and seeing life through a lens. She has a peculiar vision of beauty- and wants to be shooting for Vogue before she's and adult. Photography is as much a part of her as breathing. She has already shot three editorials and been published and two clothing campaigns, so we can only wait to see what is in store for this incredible teens future.
My inspirations are (of course) fashion magazines like Vogue and Oyster. And all the crazy avant garde fashion photography on the internet! The world is my inspiration as well.
I'll never admit it, but sometimes I like the music in the charts. Oh no, I think I just did! Apart from that I like Angus and Julia Stone, Maria Mena, MGMT, Dr. Dog, Panic at the Disco, The Presets, Ra Ra Riot, oh so many different bands. I really need to find some cooler music though.Favorite Websites?
Avant garde fashion photography blogs (Wildfox, foto_decadent) and deviantART because if it weren't for them I might not have even have become a photographer.Favorite photographers?
Don't make me list! There are seriously so many I adore and worship. I love photographers with guts, photographers who are controversial and shoot exactly what they want to shoot.
Favorite Fashion Campaigns?The new Missoni is nice, although I love anything involving the beach. Oh and how hot is the new Calvin Klein jeans campaign?!
What makes your work so unique?
I have a fresh outlook on absolutely everything. I am so positive and I see the beauty others miss in things and then make sure they see it. My models are friends and because I connect with the models and I think it shows in my work.
Shooting on a beautiful, tropical, isolated island. Staying with beautiful girls (maybe Gemma Ward or Sascha or models I've scouted from all over the world.) Shooting them in Alexander McQueen/Wang or Michael Kors. Having two weeks on the island to shoot and retouch. It would be awe-inspiring.
