Carlota Guerrero

The (already famous) fashion photographer

  • She works from....Barcelona, Spain.
  • She is represented by...We Folk.
  • She loves...shooting on film.
  • She worked with...Solange on her album 'A seat at the table'.
  • She focuses on...the female body in all its glory.

 

I love Carlota's pastel, blurry, raw world where the women definitely run the show. The colour palette is my current favourite: peach, skin, nude, freckles, brown. Human and beautiful.

  • She loves...anything that doesn't take itself too seriously.

I'm in love with Agnes' super sleek aesthetics and her mastery of colour and composition. She is truly amazing and her photographs always leave me speechless.

Pierre & Florent

The pop duo of photographers

  • They love...shooting the model Garance Rochoux-Moreau.
  • They've worked with...Jour/né & Castelbajac, but not only.
