The Times Luxx

Back when the weather was still scorching, I had the pleasure of going up to Chatsworth House to photograph Becky Crowley, head gardener of the cutting garden for The Times LUXX Magazine. Really happy to see the photos in print last weekend, 8th September with art direction from B.A.M London. Read the article online here.

See my work at this month's Uniqlo TATE Late - Super Flex Community

Super excited that two of my photographs have been selected to be shown at The Tate Modern this Friday 27th October as part of the next Uniqlo Tate Lates.   

My photos will be projected on the walls alongside a selection Reggie Yates's photographs and images from an amazing selection of other photographers. The photographs feature those who have helped the individuals reach their potential, so I thought I'd share my images here and explain why I submitted them to be shown.

 Mel for  Birdsong

Mel for Birdsong

I shot this one last year as part of a lookbook for ethical fashion label Birdsong. Sophie and Sarah, founders of Birdsong, have built a brand on two principles which are values I also fiercely advocate; 'No sweatshops, no photoshop'. I was so proud to shoot this series for them and since then they have been brilliant supporters of what I do. See more of the images I shot for them here.

  Rupi Kaur  -  Milk and Honey

Rupi Kaur - Milk and Honey

When poet and author Rupi Kaur commissioned me to photograph this series to celebrate the release of her first book Milk and Honey I just knew it was the beginning of something magic. Using her personal experience as the inspiration for her work and sharing her stories of pain and healing, Rupi has built a strong community of followers around her online and in real life and in turn helped others to heal themselves. Working with her inspired me to create work which was more honest and personal and lead to the very beginnings of Body of Women. See the rest of our series of photographs here.

Made My Wardrobe in Typical Girls Zine

So great to see Lydia Higginson talking about her project Made My Wardrobe in the latest issue of Typical Girls Zine alongside this portrait we took together earlier in the year.

Issue 3 of Typical Girls is available to preorder now, here. And throughout the summer Lydia is running a range of workshops, get involved with those here.

Support your local seamstress

A little something special coming this Sunday. So proud to have some images alongside Lydia Higginson of Made My Wardrobe's powerful piece in the Sunday Times Style magazine this weekend. I won't say much more about it because it's not my story to tell and also I can't really put into words how fucking brilliant I think this woman is. So grateful to her for sharing her story with the world and being such a support to me and a whole community of mega women.

You'll have to pick up a copy of the paper on Sunday 22nd April to see the real photos, so in the meantime here are a couple of outtakes from our shoot down at our home from home Bristol Textile Quarter.
