BEAUTIFUL WARRIORS BY CHARLIE SURBEY

Charlie has spent the past few months learning about and photographing Betta fish for a new project titled Beautiful Warriors which launches today. To read more about this wonderful project and view the exhibition, please visit Another.Boutique


We are thrilled to support WaterAid, whose mission is to provide clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene in the world’s poorest communities, enabling entire communities to unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good. The link between BEAUTIFUL WARRIORS and WaterAid is freshwater. Just like humans, Betta fish cannot survive without freshwater and Charlie felt that this was a very strong parallel. Donations from print sales will be made to WaterAid.


PACO MAY ARTWORK FOR CONNECTRN

Paco was commissioned by ConnectRN to create a piece of artwork and the brief was “a love letter to nurses who are under constant stress and pressure.”

In his own words…

“We’ve heard a lot recently about “essential” workers and our “heroes” working in health care. While this language is meant to contextualise and elevate certain jobs and workers, it can also have the effect of flattening them. None of us are going through this easily or with a cape on. I’ve worked with @connectnapp to hopefully shine a light on our nurses without pretending they are superhuman. I wanted to highlight the lives of nurses off the job. You never know who is behind a uniform and you will almost always be surprised.”





BEAUTY STORIES BYDIA CORREIA

Nádia has created two new beauty stories #techexpressionism and #skinimalism. Nádia explains the inspiration behind the new work:

“Looking at this year’s trends I wanted to create an uplifting beauty story. What beauty needs is true inclusivity #PullUpOrShutUp, sustainability and the return of the make up rebellion #expressyourself. Starting with the new trend of #skinimalism - the new glow up is all about embracing your natural skin and super-minimal makeup. It’s the end of the caked-on make-up look.
This new ‘effortlessly chic’ routine is simple and sustainable.”



NEW SIGNING - JOSH EDGOOSE

We are thrilled to announce that we are now representing the brilliantly creative Josh Edgoose. Josh’s images  focus on the interactions between people, honing in on a sense of British humour and wit by seeking out the visually interesting within the mundane, perhaps otherwise unnoticed moments of the day-to-day.




MUZUNGU SISTERS CAMPAIGN BY ESTER KEATE

Ester was commissioned to shoot the SS21 campaign for Muzungu Sisters; a brand offering ethically-sourced handmade luxury products produced by 20 different artisan communities across four continents.






SKIN BYDIA CORREIA

Nádia’s new series SKIN has recently featured in Hunger Magazine. Here Nádia explains the project:

Skin, texture, exploring touch and the sensorial. We get to go close and be transported into a world of raw and unrefined details. An umbilical relationship with touch and the skin – the organ.

Skin took inspiration from the strange sensation I would get when someone would accidentally touch me this past year. The pandemic has changed the way we relate to one another. The opportunity to kiss or hug a friend is rare these days and Oh boy! I am a hugger. We have lost a bond, a level of connection. I have never felt as confused about human contact as today.

I joined forces with this incredible all-female team, where diversity behind and in front of camera are key. It’s been a privilege to be collaborating with awesome human beings and professionals. Beauty is by my friend and legend Min Sandhu, hair by the kickass storyteller Regina Manseen and styling by the energetic Amisha Kapadia.
