We here at Shoot Towers are very excited about the forthcoming launch of The New British – a magazine from our pal Kez Glozier and the legendary Neville Brody. Dean Chalkley has worked on a couple of sessions for the launch issue (along with other obscure names such as Nick Knight) and here is a little teaser video that Dean filmed with The Dogbones to go alongside the shoot that will be appearing in the first edition of the printed magazine.
As Dean himself says…. turn up the volume ….put on full screen and hold on tight.
Pip recently worked with acclaimed London based musician Ben Khan. Pip’s photographs of Khan were used by VICE in his first ‘proper’ interview, in which he explains his desire for privacy and control of his exposure.
He wants to ‘keep the music out there and keep myself to myself’, so much so that he often takes to shielding his face when photographed, even for interviews.
The photos feature a intricately patterned and hand stitched backdrop made and sent over by Khan’s father, a silk-maker from Kashmir.
Clash Magazine named him one to watch in 2014.
Rebecca Miller shot this dreamy and romantic fashion story, ‘Brocade and Bloom Tapestry’, for the latest issue of Phoenix Magazine. Styled by Ellie Lines – it features clothes by Tara Jarmon, Malene Birger, Desert Designs, Red Valentino, Katya Katya Shehurina, and YMC, shoes by Gina and jewellery by Jesse Western.
‘Summer encroaches slowly on the English rose. In the hush of rambling country estates, modern debutantes shade their alabaster complexions against a faded backdrop of flocked wallpaper and draped floral textiles. As temperatures rise, lightweight transitional coats and elegant printed tunics give way to romantic folds of white tulle and lace, accented by embroidered motifs and sequin details…’

The House of Wedgwood photographed by Rebecca Miller: please excuse the poor quality image but instead choose to focus on the fabulous piece written by academic Judith Williamson which recently appeared in Source Magazine.
Picking out the carefully crafted subtleties and elements of surrealism, Judith dissects and puts into words exactly what photographer Rebecca Miller and props and set designer Twig Hutchinson set out to achieve when they joined forces with BuroCreative, to create the rebrand imagery for Wedgwood.
Subsequently Rebecca and co have gone on to shoot the follow up campaign and you can see the project in its entirety here.
