Unless I'm bombarding Mo and Suji (such a blog-hopping slag, but his new one is pretty dope - and it's not just because I feature on it sometimes #ModelLife) with link after link via every messaging service at my disposal, I tend to keep my major contemporary creative crushes pretty close to the chest for several reasons - you'd be right to put your money on selfishness as one of them, but it's mostly driven by an odd pet peeve of mine. It all started with Kendrick Lamar, really. It's one thing to have a mutual interest, and another to give a recommendation and have the recommendee come back a day later or so to start talking to you about this person like they've been life-long fans, armed with analyses of their work, a list of their favourite songs, pieces etc and a lecture on how so-and-so event from their past helped shape so-and-so. My reaction? Please stop. We're not bonding, this is not "our thing" now; it's actually pretty annoying, go away. By all means, let me know you're enthused by this new discovery, just don't go overboard or I will deflate the lifeboat.

That being said, I really can't keep Kat Irlin from any of you guys who aren't familiar any longer.

The versatile New York-based photographer is hardly a new discovery, having already gained quite a large following on Instagram (myself included #SerialLiker #OwningIt) and worked for the likes of Coach, Vogue and Louis V. She has a style, this almost gothic mood that's dark, evocative and gritty; but it's so beautifully blended with the vulnerability, openness and raw sexuality of her subjects that it's impossible not to stop and appreciate each shot. Even objects have this character about them, this story behind them in front of her lens. I'm such a fan, I literally wait with bated breath for her new posts.

So it was no surprise that when faced with the dilemma of what to break up these awesome 1999 Helmut Lang fragrance posters with, a scent that embodied the jarring sexual tension of the Helmut Lang brand, Miss Irlin was the first to spring to mind. No photo in particular, although I do have a soft spot for her work with Nora Vai (clearly)... just Kat. And now, here we are.

Here's a link to her portfolio if you'd like to have a gander - and believe me, you do: http://katirlin.com/
