In the world of portraiture Alexander has found himself an unexplored area, the ear. The ‘Year of the Ear’ series is a census – the ear is more crowded than ever – already under assault from eyewear, headphones and earrings, we’ve now had to add a mask to the whole situation. Alexander hopes that the isolated view implicates the imagination of the viewer to fill in the rest of the details – age, occupation, class…

Children of Covid is an ongoing documentary series by Bex Day, which examines the emotional and physical implications of COVID-19 on children between ages 4 and 12. Styled by Adam Winder, and cast by Bex herself, accompanied with hair by Tommy Taylor, the trio wanted to create a timeless series which merges surrealism with realism; aiming to depict moments of covid lockdown whilst merging it with staged locations which represent where the children imagined themselves while stuck inside. When paired with the text, the photos re-establish their role as documentation. Ultimately, Bex uses these two genres side by side to mimic the way COVID-19 strictly imposted a new reality, which would then become the new norm. The series so far has been featured by AnOther Magazine, The Sunday Times, The British Journal of Photography and Channel 4, to name a few.
With model Sonny Hall as his subject, Elliott experimented with a stripped back approach in his fashion editorial for Man About Town Magazine. In Elliott’s own words – ‘The inspiration was driven from the idea of an artist in studio. A lot of traditional artists would work and create in studios that have north facing windows, this stops any direct sunlight entering the space allowing soft even daylight all day. We shot in a studio with the same light feature adding a traditional method to our contemporary fashion story.’ Read the full story here.

The MS Society turned to photographer Spencer Murphy to document their 30 under 30 project which sheds light on those under 30 who have been diagnosed with MS. In Spencer’s own words – I really enjoyed working with the MS Society on their 30 under 30 project recently. I met some lovely young people. Covid meant we had to be creative about how we shot the project. I actually really appreciated the restrictions; driving to where each of them lived, a quick recce and then a socially distanced shoot near their homes. Sometimes the weather didn’t play ball but in general I loved the stripped back approach, exactly how I shoot my personal documentary projects.

Check out the stills and the story on Apple News to see how the interactive elements brought the story to life.
