Harnaam & Nik

For issue 7 of Parallel, I shot with Harnaam Kaur and Nik Hampshire for an editorial entitled "Let's Skirt the Issue". Harnaam Kaur, if you haven't heard of her, is Britain's "Bearded Dame". She suffers from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, which has led to excess hair growth - and resulting in one hell of a beard. Nik Hampshire is a US-based model who I'd never worked with before but was excited to meet. 

The idea was for a "gender-bender" photoshoot, in which the models wore both "masculine" and "feminine" clothing to create a discussion about gender stereotypes and expectations. Our stylist for the day was Roxanne Chanel Murray, and makeup was provided by Kate van Doren. We shot at London's Southbank Centre, taking advantage of the awesome architecture and beautiful sunshine.
