I took a photography class several years back which taught me not only how to develop my own film but gave me a good grounding in photographers to draw from. A stranger in Athens, I am taking inspiration from the documentary-style, urban photographs of Berenice Abbott who might be best known for her series "Changing New York."
Between the years of 1935-1938 she photographed the city as it underwent a transformation into a leading metropolis. Her intentions in the creation of this project was "to preserve for the future an accurate and faithful chronicle in photographs of the changing aspect of the world's greatest metropolis, ... a synthesis which shows the sky-scraper in relation to the less colossal edifices which preceded it, ... to produce an expressive result in which moving details must coincide with balance of design and significance of subject."
Fashion editorials taking place in an urban setting have a really nice contrast. There's nothing like the mundane and industrial to make a frivolous outfit that much more intriguing and lovely. Exhibit A: US Elle September 1999, "Urban Planning" shot by Steve Hiett. Found here.
