You probably remember her best as a supermodel but nowadays Helena Christensen is a renowned photographer – and her latest role is working with HUAWEI, expressly its flagship ‘intelligent’ phone the P20 Pro.
As something of a fan of the new triple-lens Leica camera, HUAWEI P20 Pro, Helena has been commissioned to use the camera to shoot an intimate portrait series.
What photographers love about the HUAWEI P20 Pro is that it fuses an incredible camera with powerful A.I., giving photography lovers the tools to master their craft in the palm of their hand.
By combining the world’s first triple-lens Leica camera and exciting innovation, driven by Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), Huawei delivers an excellent photography experience.
It was at the launch, held at Paris’ iconic Grand Palais, Huawei announced the exciting partnership with Helena Christensen.
Her collection of images entitled “See More”, focuses on the stories of three talented professionals, and demonstrates how the new mobile camera allows photographers and viewers alike to see more of subjects, thanks to the perfect balance of light and detail in each portrait.
The series demonstrates Helena’s skill as a photographer using the technology and creativity together in one perfect art form. The Huawei 40MP Leica triple-lens combines powerful object recognition and super slow-motion to deliver a professional photography experience.
Recognised for iconic campaigns with fashion houses including Chanel, Versace and Prada, Helena Christensen is one of the world’s most famous supermodels. Having long held a passion for photography, she has stepped back behind the camera lens in recent years to focus on her work as a photographer, and has been credited with exhibitions in galleries across the globe.
“For this shoot, it was important to me that I captured the spirit and dedication of my subjects, and that my portraits faithfully convey what kind of person they are without the need for words,” says Helena Christensen. “Shooting with the HUAWEI P20 Pro smartphone not only made this process a lot easier, but it also meant I could get a lot closer to these amazing women, as it removed the need for any additional equipment, effectively breaking down the physical barriers that previously stood between me and my subjects.”
Among the features that enhance photography results include the largest light sensor in a smartphone (to allow in more light, resulting in a clear, focused image) and Night Mode (for incredible night-time photography). In addition, the HUAWEI FullView Display maximises the display for stunning visuals, whilst the ultra-efficient battery will keep users connected and shooting for hours. Plus, with HUAWEI SuperCharge they will be back up and running in just a few minutes* when a power top-up is finally needed!
“With HUAWEI P20 Pro we are ushering in a new era of and benchmark for smartphone cameras,” said Richard Yu, CEO Huawei Consumer Business Group. “It combines the very latest in smartphone technology with Leica Camera’s legendary expertise, to deliver an incredible master photography experience driven by A.I., giving users the tools to achieve professional-standard results with every shot.”
Beautiful colourways make the HUAWEI P20 Pro a fashionable and stylish smartphone choice, allowing users to express their personality and emotion through their handset. Striking Twilight, Midnight Blue and Pink Gold hues complement more traditional Black shades, whilst the world’s first gradient-coloured glass body provides another aesthetic twist to stand out from the crowd.
Helena’s three subjects were specially chosen for the passion for perfection in their craft. Their portraits, taken by Helena Christensen using the HUAWEI P20 Pro allow us to “See More” of their dedication and commitment within their everyday lives. Helena captures the dedicated concentration of jewellery designer Adeline Rapon as she evolves and develops her designs; she captures the grace of ballerina Melissa Chapski as she perfects the perfect pirouette; and she photographs the enigmatic Maria Fagerström, an international pilot who has travelled almost every corner of the world.
