Anne in light and shadow

Photographer Peter Coulson makes light and shadow work so hard for him, and in so many different ways, that you start to wonder if he pays them overtime. A simple black and white portrait of a model is rarely simple with Coulson: like this shoot of Anne Duffy that feels more like an artful experiment in making shadow and light battle it out. Sometimes light dominates and sometimes shadow; but what’s ultimately proven is that neither can exist without the other.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
