Twin Issue XIX

10.10.2018 | Art , Blog , Culture , Twin Book | BY:

Twin issue XIX is all about not following the expected path – you could say the heroes and heroines of this issue are are rebels, but more importantly they’re pioneers. Leading with energy, humour and fearlessness that knocks you sideways. A celebration of speaking up and standing out. 

The contributors to this new issue of Twin are all united by their insanely individual talent. Cass Bird celebrates the mesmeric Mette Towley, star of Rihanna and N.E.R.D’s smash hit Lemon, on a low-tempo day while Fanny Latour Lambert brings the strange and surreal home. Actress Indira Varma talks about women’s power in the post #metoo movement.

Stefanie Moshammer heads to Mühlviertel for energetic family frolicks while Charlotte James and Sebastian Bruno let loose inside Merthyr’s famous social club. You’ll be thrown into a swashbuckling tribute to Shakespearian England courtesy of Scott Trindle’s epic imagination. 

The history and contemporary importance of afro hair salons in South London is explored by Sophie Green and Lynda Cowell while Emma Tempest creates contrasts with Veronique Didry against a striking natural landscapes. Lara Johnson-Wheeler chats to Niall O’Brien about documenting the unseen world within a world at Lourdes, while Agnes Lloyd-Platt makes you double take with her striking vivid shots around San Roque, Cadiz. It’s a knock out.

Twin Issue XVIII

19.03.2018 | Blog , Twin Book | BY:

As we make our way through 2018, Twin delves into the complexities of female camaraderie through a low-key lens, as we study the closeness of sisterhood, as compiled by Holly Hay. Samuel Bradley also turns focus on girls with bows, as archery takes centre stage when accessorised with the latest collections. In the States, we meet Arrow De Wilde — daughter of rock photographer Autumn de Wilde — and the band she fronts, Starcrawler. Shot by Molly Matalon, this explosive group are as likely to shred expectations as riffs, as they spit fake blood on crowds and remind us all what music can, and potentially should, be about. Elsewhere, we take the drama to the ice as photographers Stevie and Mada give us incredible portraits of figure skating stars past, present and future, in catwalk attire to suit. The unimaginable power of pregnancy is also given the respect it deserves, thanks to Jesse J Jenkins and Aurelia Donaldson, in ‘The First Thing I Stole Was Your Milk’, and the important, and ethical, work of designer Bethany Williams is explored in ‘Cycle Of Exchange’. Lastly, we raise the barre on couture through the refined images of Agnes Lloyd-Platt, and find out what happened with Okay Kaya (Wilkins) almost met PJ Harvey. Join us for the ride.

Agnes Dei

09.08.2012 | Blog | BY:

Straight-up and fresh out of school, Agnes Lloyd-Platt is a fashion photographer we’ve got our eye on. The 22-year-old has just graduated from the London College of Fashion with a first class honours degree and is already making her name for herself in the big wide world. We love her versatility and use of colour to make photos that waver between breathtaking poetry and youth riot.

Twin caught up with the young photographer…

What’s was your first ever memorable encounter with fashion photography?
Getting a signed polaroid from Naomi Cambell when I was 11. She thought my name was Haggie.

When did you first pick up a camera?
When I was 18. I wanted to be an astronaut up until then so who knows what went wrong!

Why fashion photography?
For the people, its a much more diverse mix than I first thought.

What do you look for in an image when you’re working?
I like the directional quality of natural light, especially working with colour and location.

What do you use? Do you have a set technique?
I use a Canon 5D mkII and have recently fallen for the 50mm f1.2 lens.

You’ve shot a couple of campaigns for your mum  Ally Cappelino – What’s it like working with her?
It’s great, shes an upfront lady so I get good feedback and criticism and a compliment feels well earned.

What’s been your best shoot to date?
My Final Major Project for LCF, I worked with a great team of people and followed through with a crazy idea, proving to myself if no one else I had more skills than pointing and clicking.

Name three things you love?
Wedges (the shoe), fennel (the vegetable) and butter (the sin).

Three things you hate?
Most shades of purple (something I learned from my mother), stairs (I have an acute fear of falling down them) and bad photoshopping (it’s everywhere!)

What’s the soundtrack to your work?
Spotify’s soul radio

If you could photograph anyone, who would it be?
This is a constantly changing ideal. Posh Spice ranks highly just for her multifaceted talents and bizarre mystique.

What’s up next?
Shooting with lovely Poplin pyjamas for their SS13 collection.
