Irina Sheik Biography, Photos and Video

Irina Sheik Photo Gallery

Irina Sheik Video

Irina Sheik (born January 6, 1986 in Yemanzhelinsk, Russia), born Irina Shaykhlislamova and sometimes credited as Irina Shayk, is a fashion model who has appeared on the covers of such magazines as Annabelle (Germany, May 2005), Jalouse (Greece, February 2006) and Bolero (Switzerland, June 2005). Sheik appeared in the 2007 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue as one of the 2007 Rookies and also makes an appearance in the 2008 edition.

Irina Sheik knows all about the benefits of traveling by train. After all, that’s where a fashion executive discovered her in 2004, during a lengthy three-day trip from Chelyabinsk to Moscow. That chance encounter convinced her to pursue a career in modeling and Irina was soon signed by Traffic, the same agency that represents supermodels such as Anne V, Daniella Sarahyba and Natasha Poly, among many others.

In 2008, Sheik starred in a photo story for the song single “Diamond Girl” produced by Ryan Leslie.

Ryan Leslie also produced a song dedicated to Irina, named ‘I-R-I-N-A’, a song he produced to ‘break the ice’ on the set of diamond girl, as he didn’t speak Russian.

Sheik is the face of the world wide promotional campaigns of brands such as Intimissimi , Guess, Lacoste, Martini etc. She has also appeared on the covers of magazines throughout Europe, including Annabelle in Germany, Jalouse in Greece and Bolero in Switzerland.

American Photo Fashion Special Issue

Posted on 17 September 2008 by Goes11

American Photo Fashion Special Issue Photo Gallery

Something that nobody can deny is the close relation between Fashion and Photography. So it’s not surprising that a well know specialized magazine like AMERICAN PHOTO dedicates a special issue to that topic. As David Schonauer, the Editor in Chief points out the history of fashion and photography are intertwined in a particular of art and commerce.

We all know that Fashion photography (as it is on the shows and videos) it’s about t create a fiction, but as Schonauer writes .. “but like great literature, this type of fiction can give us a glimpse of the real world we might otherwise not notice”

However, knowing that close relation, usually Fashion Photography was considered as disposable, despite the great creations that were published in Magazines like those works of Lillian Bassman (photos 2 to 6), and others. That has been changin lately. Today, the demand of this type of photo has increased in the big auctions of fine art, and recently, on-line Fashion Photography galleries, like http://www.photographerslimitededitions.com/index.html will make this type of images available to a great public, even those that have never been in a gallery…

Great creators and photographers like Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier, Inez Van Lamsweerde, Vinoodh Matadin, Nigel Barker etc etc. linked usually with names as Doutzen Kroes, Catherine McNeill, Agyness Deyn (considered as the Top Models for 2008), are or will be related also to the fine arts..

Of course, as happens in literature (and in any art field, but I’m referring to Schonauers’s analogy), still will be masters and average photographers. It’s very common to see in Fashion Magazines and advertising the typical boring photographer that only takes front photos with a ring flash from a over make up model who has to carry 90% of the work (or sometimes, not even that), with a photo retouching to enhance some characteristics and erase mistakes. But among that average works, usually you will find one or several photos that will call your attention, due to their beauty and concept. On those cases, try to get the name of the photographer and save it, and be sure that when looking for the works of this person, you will never be disappointed.

AMERICAN PHOTO Fashion special issue it’s now in the stands, I would suggest you to find it. You will find more fine works there, as well as some very interesting concepts.

And also I suggest you to keep an eye on the Photo Magazines in general. Most of them have galleries and portfolios of photographers that work or have work into the fashion world. And most probably, you will see how the tendency of this rich area of Fashion Photography and Video will be, which is a very important part of Le monde de la mode.

Ultimately, I do recommend you to read.. whatever… just read… that will make you a better person, hehehe
