Barter, Baby.

  • Louise Hagger

“Did you ever think that in 2020 we’d be standing in line for toilet paper and flour?” ‘Barter, Baby.’ is a remote collaboration by photographer Louise Hagger (London) and food stylist Victoria Granof (New York). Conceived during a FaceTime cuppa, they shared the photography, creating visual pairings of what Granof had been bartering. “We’re talking value. And values. In this spring of our discontent, with its themes of lack, limitation and restriction, what do you value most: things? People? Experiences?” And have any of them gained or lost value as they migrate from the “want” to the “need” pile? Design: Owen Evans Printed by Newspaper Club
