Understanding the correlation between fashion and photography, outdoor brand Barbour Beacon commissions two London-based emerging photographers to capture the new Spring/Summer 2019 collection from an artistic perspective.
Hyperbeast makes the argument that "photographing under-explored environments has exploded" in recent years and the statement is not far from the truth. As rapid urbanization is taking over, we are seeing more and more creatives trying to break from the status quo and tackle adventurous and uninhabited spaces in their work.
The editorial for Barbour Beacon's Spring/Summer 2019 collection is interesting as it employs two photographers — Mohamed Abdulle and George Muncey, to showcase the product range with a focus on the "under-explored environments" mentioned before. Thus, the editorial does not only spotlight outdoor garments and accessories but it also gives the inside scoop on adventure-forward creative practices.
