Abbey Midanik is a Toronto based photographer interested in the interaction between fashion and spaces. She uses the tool of photography to fuse her interests of fine art and fashion, and capture minimalist monochromatic compositions. Elements such as lines, angles, and forms are also essential aesthetics in her work, and often steer her to capture scenes that are straightforward and pleasing to the eye.
Midanik’s approach to styling is simple: she photographs models wearing little to no makeup, the clothes are from her own closet, and props are items she usually finds near her shooting location. During her shoots she tries to capture models in a state that reflects that of her own, and mimic her own day-to-day life . Overall, Abbey’s main goal is not to create something considered fashionable, but to create something eye-catching, unique, and most importantly, self-reflexive.
