Cartier & Sofia

I’m a little in love with Sofia Coppola. Her films, her attention to detail, her soft yet assured style, her storytelling – but most of all her love for women, and the power of the female presence in a leading role. Cartier, a Maison synonymous with style and femininity, gave Sofia carte blanche to direct the film for the relaunch of the Panthère de Cartier collection. Both icons of taste and elegance – Sofia, an artist whose work transcends trends, gives sensitive expression to what femininity is today – and together, the campaign’s outcome was perfection.

Christina Lane

I have a thing for still lifes. Perhaps because they’re so rich in character, and my imagination scuttles to dreams of unique, textured, layered tales. And I really, really love them in stark shadow and valorous contrast. If any of this appeals, you will love Christina Lane.

Still Life with Sharyn Cairns

The phrase ‘still life’ conjures up such fond memories for me. It takes me back to art practicals in high school, where I dried out mielies in the weeks leading up to it to create texture and a notion of abandoned abundance. In my mind, still lifes are all about the wrinkles and layers and sustenance and… fun. Sharyn Cairns, a world renowned Australian photographer, takes the nostalgic idea of still life and brings it to a beautiful, breathtaking photographic reality.
