We approached our good friend Alex Gardner, a surrealist painter from Los Angeles, to collaborate with us for an editorial for Hunger Magazine. Alex’s paintings have a very distinctive aesthetic, and we’d been interested in attempting to recreate them for a personal project. When Hunger Magazine approached us to contribute to their 15 issue, the shoot dates coincided with Alex being in the UK. We worked closely with Alex on set on making sure the lighting and palettes honoured his work. We worked intimately with stylist Kim Howells to bring a fashion sensibility to the piece, whilst ensuring it remained respectful to the world of Gardner’s work.¬†
