I am a photographer based in the UK.
I enjoy exploring the contradictory notion of blending models into their background with custom-made, individual garments, created slowly by hand in a traditional way. Knitting is the ultimate analogue process, complete with imperfections and replete with detail. At a time when it is often assumed that anything out of the ordinary in photography is solely the result of CGI or Photoshop, it is satisfying to work with a deliberately slow, hand-crafted medium. The results aren’t perfect and there are bits that don’t match up.
Each of these pictures has taken me several days or weeks to research and plan, and Nina has spent weeks, sometimes months, knitting each garment.
