Adi Speigelman for French Fries Magazine
Adi perfectly expressing with one look how we all feel about Covid-19.
On a serious note, I’m writing this from my home in Cornwall, where I certainly feel very safe. Life hasn’t changed a whole lot for me yet. I can still work from home, writing blog posts, planning ideas, emailing. I can still go out and walk my dog. I can still go to the shops… but who knows for how long. Its no secret anymore that I’m moving to Greater London this year… well, all I can say is that I’m grateful that we haven’t made the proper move yet. Enduring this in Cornwall feels like a much nicer place to be.
Covid-19 has hit the industry hard, and I’m honestly not sure what the future holds. Shoots are cancelled or postponed, and no one knows for how long. Even tests don’t feel like they can take place right now, so I’m currently looking at a long time where I can’t do what I love… which is probably what scares me the most. While I wait, you can bet that I’ll be spending time planning shoots, moodboarding, putting together beautiful proposals. I’ll be ready to hit the ground running, full steam ahead, more motivated than ever.
These images were taken in January, when Coronavirus wasn’t on our radar at all. I was contacted by Adi Spiegelman’s agents, Visage, in Switzerland (my home country), and asked to put together this shoot for French Fries Magazine. It was quite a last minute production, but I’m incredibly happy with the results of these images. Building my beauty portfolio over the last year and a half has been a challenge, and I still feel like I’m figuring out where I want to take this aspect of my work, but this shoot felt very “me.”
Huge thank you to Pink Piglet Jewellery for lending me such beautiful earrings, Sister Jane and Ghospell for the shirts, and also to Daisy Jewellery for some of their pieces as well.
