…and they’re coming to put the win back into winter.

Stand back black, go away grey – there’s enough of you in the sky to wear you on our bodies too. We don’t need any more of your darkness, we need colour and light to fill the gaping gap in the spectrum at this time of year.

To fill this said gap, my photographer friend Xanthe Berkeley came to me with a plan; to make up for all the lost colour by overloading and filling the frame will ALL of the hue in a dedicated photoshoot.
