The previous week we published an article about world-famous photographers, who are exactly in the public eye of everyone who is interested in fashion and art. Right now we are going to tell you about Top 5 Aspiring Contemporary Photographers 2020 such as Caleb & Gladys, Tony Kelly, Mattew Brookes, Amanda Charcian, Glen Luchford.
Caleb & Gladys – @calebandgladys
Caleb and Gladys are fashion advertising photography duo from Singapore. They are famous for their surrealistic and dramatic manner of creating images that are both visually stunning and at the same time invariably aimed at redefining boundaries.
Since the beginning of their photography career they have been published in many international magazines such as Tatler, Harper’s Bazaar, L’Officiel, Papercut & Vogue Italia’s PhotoVogue and many others.
It is an interesting fact that photography for both of them was just a hobby at first. They were specialized in completely different areas of IT and Economics. However, on this example, we can see how hobby turns into lifestyle job.

Tony Kelly- @tonykellyworld
Tony Kelly is a photographer and director of fine arts. Based in Los Angeles, he is known for his cinematic style of photography with exquisite aesthetics and vibrant use of color.
At the beginning, his career was far away from fashion. He spent years of his life covering people and places that most of us would never want to see. For example, the civil war in Rwanda and the war in Afghanistan.
Perhaps, because of this he is not afraid of showing real emotions and real people on his images: dynamism, sex, relationships, boundaries that are violated, beautiful men, beautiful women, ugly emotions, ecstasy, fierce color, dark black etc.
His work has been published in Vanity Fair, Vanity Fair Italia, Vogue Paris, Vogue Greece, GQ and other prestigious fashion magazines.
Matthew Brookes- @mattewbrookesphoto
Matthew Brooks is a UK fashion photographer who was raised in South Africa. Today, splitting between Paris and New York, Brookes enjoys photographing sports men and women and dancers.
He is known for his simple and casual style. Brooks has photographed editorial articles for magazines such as GQ Style Germany, British GQ Style, Town & Country.
Amanda Charcian- @amanda_charcian
Amanda Charchian (b. Los Angeles, CA, 1988) creates work with a feminine sensuality that celebrates the erotically charged. She captures the intimacy between her and people who pose to her camera.
Charchian’s black and white photographs portray women, frequently friends of hers, in abstract settings, on which she paints simple forms in daring primary colours, highlighting the female form.
Her commercial clients include Gucci, Bulgari, Chloe, Cartier, Nordstrom, Glossier, MCM and others.
Glen Luchford- @_glen_luchford
A self-educated Brighton-born photographer, Luchford left school at the age of 15 and moved to London where he worked in a hair salon. For the first time Luchford signed with the New York agency Art + Commerce at the age of 24. Luchford has successfully exemplified a visual language that had never before been seen in the fashion or fine art arenas, launching the photographer as one of his generation’s most imaginative talents.
For the last thirty years, he has worked with most of fashion’s leading magazines including British Vogue, French Vogue, Vanity Fair, and many more.
