Benjamin Alexander Huseby

This afternoon i was flipping through the pages of some old Vogue's when i suddenly saw this great fashion editorial in UK Vogue March 2006. It is called 'Heavenly Creatures' and is shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby (Oslo, Norway 1977).
I think this man is a genius, so i searched on the www for his agency. He's with Untitled UK. On one of the first pages of this Vogue, he tells a little bit about himself: he's a self-taught fashion and art photographer and is obsessed with chilli sauce and food shopping. He once won a school disco marathon by dancing 34,5 hours! Hmm...quite interesting, don't you think? Nice to know is that the man himself is almost as good looking as his photographs (thanks to his Norwegian and Pakistani parents). Not that i know him personally (hehe), but there's a small picture of him in Vogue 03-06. So if you still have this issue, get it out of the dust!
Strangely enough, Untitles says in his biography he did study Fine Art in London. So is he really self-taught or doesn't Fine Art has anything to do with photography?
Either way, his work is great. Magazines like Another Magazine, I-D, Dazed and Confused and Vogue agree with me, so he contributes regularly to these magazines.
Oh, let's not forget about his blog!

Heavenly Creatures, Vogue UK March 2006
I really love this whole 'happy-friends-picknicky-summer-thing'.
