You probably wouldn’t browse Eclectic Trends from time to time if style and photography wouldn’t be one of your passions. Today we won’t point out only one significant stylist or photographer – but a theme we observe is really trending.

Monochromatic styling and photography is popping up more and more. One of our last posts about Dietlind Wolf  has shown us how effective monochromatic styling and photography can be. Tone-on-tone palettes is another really popular article.

A look closer makes you realize that there is a more complex structure behind them.

With these prevailing devices not only one thing stands out but the whole image becomes a statement piece.

At other times an arbitrary color is chosen to create a stronger image. Summed up, all these works look like exaggerated pop art pieces. The styled photographies appear more like graphic art prints and humorous compositions. Often you can’t tell if photoshop has been done its magic or if the image is a 3d compositions, in any case it’s trending!
