This story was shot while travelling through Cape Town, South Africa. I became fascinated with the unique style of the city, the contrast between old and new, and the huge fashion and film industry flourishing there. I wanted to shoot a piece that captured the sense of what this felt like to me.
I collaborated with local stylist Serraj Semaar. We sourced all the clothing from a local street wear hub called Corner Store — a concept store and creative platform locals collaborate with and use as a platform for self expression. The styling was inspired by everyday African street wear looks; very minimalist and clean. We matched the clean lines and neutral tones with the architecture around us.
