Cybele Malinowski has galvanised her place in the photo industry with her bright, bold and unmistakable imagery in the fashion and music industry. Her work has graced the cover of countless mags both nationally and internationally, and over her 8 years in the industry she has shot the who’s who of Australian pop and fashion royalty. Cybele’s clean lines, strong graphic and geometric structure and attention to detail constantly reference back to her formal training in architecture. Always up for challenging herself, and progressing as a photographer, Cybele has made time in her hectic schedule to take on a master’s in photography at SCA to focus on her personal work, and further develop her philosophical and theoretical framework in photography and video art. She has no doubt this will lead her to new unfound spaces within her medium, and expand her work from the commercial world into the art world.
Model-Maison is a project of love and dedication that has seen Cybele shooting models in their bedrooms all over the suburbs of Sydney, LA, London, Ukraine and Shanghai. The blog is an insight into the model’s worlds, while still retaining some of the fantasy of fashion. In a collaborative sense, Cybele works closely with each model to create a series of images in and around their homes. Cybele gives the model the freedom to style themselves and they work together on creating a world somewhere between fashion and realism. Despite the proliferation of social media, models remain an endless source of fascination and Model-Maison gives the consumer a rare look into their lives. Model-Maison has been almost 2 years in the making, but is set to be a sought-after and unique offering in a crowded digital space.
