Vanitas is series of quietly macabre stills shot as part of a collaboration with Julian Abrams.
The styling and art direction was inspired by the Dutch masterworks of the 16th and 17th century.
Flowers were hand-picked based on those available during the period, by London-based floristry practice Grace & Thorn.
The shoot took place on location in an untouched 18th century townhouse.

Vanitas

Art Direction, 2017

In 2017, I collaborated with the prestigious photographer Julian Abrams to capture Vanitas; a photographic series inspired by the macabre masterworks of the 16th and 17th century. Vanitas was shot on location at 4 Princelet street; an early eighteenth century Georgian townhouse with complete original interior.
