Tais’ personal series Unstable Nature is inspired by the current pandemic, where the words unstable and uncertain immediately spring to mind. Alongside Stylist Gabrielle Stivala, they worked with materials that easily break, change shape and structure to portray a sense of fragility and uncertainty. The series features jewellery from Lisa Plaut, Loewe, Simone Rocha, Isabel Marant and Albus Lumen.
In an abstract fashion Tais used photography as a tool to reflect on the last year. The lipstick that embodies 2020. Damaged but still up and running.
Tais collaborated with Japanese Jeweller Kanako Hayakaw to capture Dew Jewellery, the hand-made jewellery collection designed and inspired by nature. Tais had complete creative freedom and created a concept using organic textures and shapes to complement the jewellery.
The Financial Times turned to Alexander to photograph the Faulkes family for the story ‘How Foulkes and sons became the Kardashians of cigars’. It is, in truth, less of a product and more of a culture; a culture for which I have been particularly grateful during this annus horribilis. Read the full story here.
Bex was commissioned to capture the 2020 campaign for Babbington Jewellery. We wanted to show the jewellery in a timeless yet surreal manner, emphasising the narrative in each image to allow purpose and depth.

A beautiful ongoing study of objects moving in the wind. In his own words – Amongst all the madness, we’ve finally set up the garden studio for small projects. This was the first mini series I did with my three year old daughter, who is fanatical about flowers.
Alexander has been documenting the weird and wonderful moments of lockdown. Coronavirus, while a stressful and taxing time, has its surprising silver linings. Slowing down, I was first panicked at the idea of not capturing the outside world with the pace of a street photographer. But then, slowly and with drama, my world — with its details, foibles, and beauty — started to reveal itself to me. I’m thrilled to continue making, grateful for this time to concentrate and savour the overlooked.
