One Seventy Four

May 27, 2010

I love featuring new and upcoming photographers on Runway Hippie – snagging them just before their career takes off and their work begins to change. My latest photographer obsession is 23 year old Valentina Vos from the Netherlands.

People are her concentration, particularly young and beautiful models. With a heavy flash and peaceful scenery, Valentina produces powerful, evocative images reminiscent of acclaimed fashion photographer, Juergen Teller. These photos have received such positive recognition that she has turned her senior project into a book entitled, One Seventy Four. The book focuses on photographing twenty-five brand new models before their careers blow up. Valentina captures these young women in their most natural states looking alive and vulnerable.

For this project I photographed 25 young models. During these photoshoots I concentrated on portraying the characters of the girls instead of their appearances. Nowadays more and more young girls are being portrayed as women and I wanted to break with this. I’m showing you the girls, not the models.” – Valentina Vos

Valentina’s book is available for purchase in June and can be pre-ordered through

With an upcoming book release, tons of online coverage, and an endless portfolio filled with breathtaking fashion photography, Valentina is on the cusp of becoming one of the industry’s most coveted photographers. Make sure to check out her flickr, blog, and website so you can see all of her incredible work. Below are some of my favorites:
