This year, Vanity Fair partnered with Instagramin a single project. In a custom-built studio adjoining the Vanity Fair Oscar Party space, contributing photographer Mark Seliger shot
portraits of guests all night long.
“We’re aiming to capture a little of the glamour of Oscar night in a timeless yet modern and accessible way,” Seliger said about the project.

Brothers Grimm’s Homeland – photography by Kilian Schoenberger
Growing up with a big woodland behind his home, Kilian Schoenberger has always been interested in mysterious landscapes and their secret places. The German photographer has now utilized the moody landscape and old stories of his childhood homeland to create a series of photographic illustrations inspired by the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. Shot in remote rural areas of Middle Europe, Brothers Grimm’s Homeland is dominated by images of haunting fog, gnarled trees and dark homes you hope are abandoned. Schoenberger’s photographs evoke the eerie feeling of the quiet before the fright, when every nerve is on edge waiting for the snap of a twig to echo through the trees.

Early on in my life I was diagnosed with dyslexia, and some other learning difficulties. It’s hard as a kid seeing everyone else doing so well at everything, and you just can’t. So the way I found myself as a person was through art. I just loved taking pictures… MICHAEL SHAINBLUm
