Amarpaul Kalirai is a fashion photographer. Born in Canada, his fascination with the true and the false in fashion imagery led him to pursue a degree in photography from the London College of Communication, after which he went on to assist a number of different art based and fashion photographers.
Based in London, Kalirai has since contributed to a number of fashion titles, including i-D, Acne Paper, Dansk and Wonderland. He has also photographed look books and other projects for labels Baartmans and Seigel, Ozwald Boetang and Christian Louboutin, amongst others.
Kalirai’s work represents a distinctly honest expression of power and beauty, combining a natural wildness with raw, sexual elements. With his ability to portray the unspoken word, he explores the realms of fashion photography in his highly unique world of hard emotions and ferocious human nature.
