Molton Brown SS15

 

Early drawing of the dress. Working on the SS14 campaign for Molton Brown.  I get to design and have a dress made and then Sandra gets to shoot it on a lake.  Super fun.

First bits of embroidery – so exciting working at hand and lock watching all the embroidery. Lucky me.  Thanks for the amazing dutches silk @ joelandson.  Love that place.

Passingusby

Eve’s story is completed – yipeee!

PASSINGUSBY wanders through the fragmented narratives that swirl in the universe imagined by Sandra Freij (photographer) and Emma Macfarlane (stylist). Emma and Sandra have worked together on various projects over the past 5 years creating inhabited worlds. During that time there were many places they earmarked for exploration. A chance meeting with a stranger’s face was all it took to set this in motion. This project is a space for all their homeless moments and noticed details. It is a journey through imaginations, images, text, objects and sounds traveled by muses that would otherwise have passed them by.

So we’ve meet Eve. We believe Eve dreams in shades of black. We decided to turn her world pastel. As she spills her dreams, she often finds herself shipwrecked. There was this one time, she discovered herself at the bottom of the Thames right under Blackfriars Bridge. Luckily, the tide was out and she was washed ashore and we found her… This is Eve’s story…

A project by Emma Macfarlane & Leonie Hampton

Exhibited at part of the Feminine Touches series Curated by Serena Babowski. Presented at the Shunt Arches, London

The images were placed in a series of narrow, glass tiled tunnels, beneath London Bridge Station. Each picture was back lit and hung as if floating, at the back of one of these rather strange little arches. Headphones where places at the bottom of the caves. An old rickety ladder moved around allowing people to climb up and peer into the spaces… As people popped their heads into view they placed the headphones on and listened to the watery worlds of our ladies. See below for more details.

The pictures were taken in the evening whilst the women bathed. I have links to their stories… when I find them I will pop them up.

Dogs

Photography Judith Erwes

Here is a taster from a series of images Judith and I worked on off from the street and their dogs. Shot in one day outside my studio on Belfast Rd. Some how I manged to get roped into dropping the boys off at the end of the day, all over London I don’t know, dogs and all.  Three dogs in a small car is quite a handful. Especially these dogs.  Secretly it was the best part of the day. It’s funny but very quickly it emerged how much these lads cared for their dogs which seemed to be the only permanent things in their life. I was touched and grateful to see the way these complicated friendships between the dog and their boy were revealed.  I think I saw true love that day. Thank you.

I was was nipped and I still have the scar to show for it ;-) … my phone got used an awful lot that day, which I thought was cute. I got to listen in, no one seemed to mind.
