Shot over the course of a day, this fashion portfolio recalls the glamorous car culture of the era.
Photographer Max Cornwall teams up with stylist Grace Joel for a dynamic fashion editorial straight out of the 80’s. The editorial reads like stills from a film, as if they were viewed from the backseat of a taxi cab, observing people as they drive by. Shot at different times over the course of a day, there are captivating movement and interactions between the models and the camera. Joel dresses the story’s characters, the majority of whom were street cast, with dynamic styling that blurs elements of normality and total glam.
