Press & Editorial

SORRY i haven't posted for a few days but i had some bad family news... my step Nana died and i was quiet upset and confused so i have been on the low. This has caused me to flare up in psoriasis so its not been a good few days! My best friend Hannah has been amazing and if it wasn't for her i probably would have broken down, she is just the best. I love you Hannah banana!!
So i have been preeping for my interviews... for photography and fashion promotion and i have just finished editing them. The first lot of photos is meant to be a story of a lost girl, she is lost in the way that she has not found her place or direction in the world yet. Here is the mini statement that i have submitted too. Its not quiet finished yet, but i put it up so you understand the photos more.

Look deeper.

I have begun with these words because I want you too look at the person, the main focus and understand her, the colours, what she is wearing and where she is.

I have incorpereted the scenry of her local town, so there is a strong contrast between who she is and where she is and to make it easier for the reader. As you can see by the way she dresses, she does not belong here. She is a city girl from london who is un sure of her life and her direction. So she traveled to find her place in the world. As you can see she is alone in these pictures, she finds it hard to fit in as she is reserved and weary of opinions and judgements that may be placed upon her. A trouble child, she smokes and drinks, and is always looking at her phone to avoid akward conversations or meetings.

She came here for a reason.

Hope you like!

Love Love
