Lifeguard on Duty. Matt Albiani.

No. These are not advertisements for Abercrombie & Fitch or J. Crew. They are photographs by New York photographer, Matt Albiani. Matt will be releasing his first book of photographs this coming Spring 2009 entitled, "Lifeguards on Duty". I'm currently in "beach mode" and find these photographs Most Excellent. I would be happy to see any of them hanging on a wall within a shadowbox frame in the company of a varied collection of paintings, drawings and sculpture.

Matt Albiani is best known for the lush and approachable sense of his surroundings. His large roster of fashion clients in the short seven years he has been working are a true testament to his talent. He has shot ad campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret, Nautica, J.Crew, Tommy Hilfiger, Hickey Freeman, Target, Lilly Pulitzer, Victorinox/Swiss Army, and French Connection. Editorials include ELLE, MARIE CLAIRE, ESQUIRE (Thailand), OUT, ALLURE, INTERVIEW, and VANITY FAIR (Italy). He has photographed celebrities Scarlet Johanssen, Josh Lucas, Matt Dillon, Anne Hathaway, Connie Nielsen, and Kerry Washington to name a few.
