His Skulls image is a personal project he embarked on this year, Duers wrote in his Graphis Portfolio. “While visiting the Southwestern US, I became fascinated by the skulls of the local Fauna.” He rigged the skulls into position and then photographed with PhaseOne and Hasselblad gear. The response to the work has been resoundingly positive, he wrote. “Today, the project continues with more photography of skulls, exploring the Fauna of other regions.”
His image of Chanel’s men’s fragrance, Bleu de Chanel, for a US fashion retailer’s lookbook is another stunning entry.
