Bleak, wild, billowing and windswept; our inspiration for this shoot was stories of mythology, both Celtic and Classical. Particularly stories based around the coast and ocean. Stories foretelling of the sea’s peculiar, poetic and enigmatic nature. Subtly, our narrative was one of a sailor, a shipwreck, a sea spirit and a Shakespearean storm.

Playing on these ideas of folklore and fables, we sought to tell a story that was ethereal, ornate, organic and untamed. Through delicate drapes, washed-up relics and cascading ship sails, we sought to illustrate all that is salty, prosaically simple and down to earth and yet sublime. Fusing the Cornish and Grecian, we sought to create something intimate, otherworldly and ‘of the sea’.
