Ollie Quinn

  • Nicole Barbosa

I shot Ollie Quinn's social media spring/summer 21 collection. In the midst of a pandemic, it is important for brands to deliver imagery that makes the client hopeful and stimulates happy thoughts. I tried to do just that.

When working on this poject, I wanted to infuse my roots in this imagery. One of my hometowns, is Lisbon. I went back early January 2021 to shoot this collection. I wanted the cast to be diverse and representative of my reality as a Cap Verdian and Guinéen creative, who grew up in Europe. Alot of the portuguese speaking colonies have migrated to portugal, and often more than not, these diasporas are not accurately represented in portuguese fashion campaigns. I included my family and acquaintances in the casting to build a universe full of people that surround me in my day to day life.
