The Fluid Self: Visualising New Identities
This month Adobe Stock are exploring the ways our views of identity are changing and how Adobe are looking to bring greater diversity to stock. Adobe’s Principal of Creative and Visual Trends, Brenda Milis highlights that, “Identity is so much less permanent and stable than it used to be.

I love it when my work is published in Vogue and I think you will love to read this too. Alice Rosati is a very talented photographer. My column looks at the philosophy of the photographer as well as their incredible portfolios. “During the photographic shoot, Rosati establishes an intimate relationship with her strong, gutsy and sexually free models.

My Latest Vogue Column Article Published with Photographer Heather Evans-Smith
I am so pleased to see my latest article for my column at Vogue has just been published. This time I interviewed the stunningly talented photographer Heather Evans-Smith. “Inspired by the deep emotional qualities of photographers Francesca Woodman and Sally Mann; their influence seeps into the soul of her images. Unlike Woodmann, who preferred to work in old buildings, where the cracked plaster and grimy floorboards lent the pictures a creepy Gothic sensibility; Evans-Smith unearths her beautiful home as studio and setting for her fantastical shoots.
