Who? Holly Hay and Kasia Bobula, London-based photographers, both regular contributors to AnOther.
What? Holly and Kasia is the first publication from Ida Rhoda, art directed by Hannah Ridley. Featuring the backstage photography of Hay and Bobula it offers a beautiful glimpse into the world behind the fashion show as seen through the eyes of two girls. Raising interesting questions on how girls photograph girls and whether their own ideals are projected onto their subjects, the book pictures numerous famous faces – including Arizona Muse and Jessica Stam – in intimate situations and moments in between.
Why? Both Hay and Bobula’s aesthetics have a magical and captivating quality. Hay acts as an observer, capturing time as it passes by; making the viewer feel as if they are there in the moment. Bobula is often more upfront and personal, engaging with her subjects and presenting images as if in conversation. Whilst the catwalk essentially acts as showcase to the upcoming season’s collections with models acting as walking clothes hangers, Hay and Bobula add more personality and emotion taking a look behind the scenes of not only the show but the performance of each girl.
Holly and Kasia launches at Beach London Gallery, Shoreditch September 13 from 7–9pm.
