For fall, Cana­dian la­bel Line Knitwear en­listed Toronto-based pho­tog­ra­pher Maya Fuhr to snap its col­lec­tion images. The re­sult is a se­ries of shots that bal­ance cu­rated moments with un­scripted ease—pre­cisely the mood the brand is cham­pi­oning this sea­son. We caught up with Fuhr on-set to talk about what it’s like be­ing be­hind the cam­era.

Selfie Love “Self­ies are re­ally lib­er­at­ing be­cause you’re view­ing your­self a cer­tain way in­stead of re­ly­ing on the pho­tog­ra­pher to por­tray you how they want to. I find it very sat­is­fy­ing that I don’t have to rely on other peo­ple to take my pic­ture.” In­sta-wor­thy “I’ll just find what I con­sider beauti­ful in ev­ery mo­ment. If I’m out for Chi­nese food with friends and I notice some­one is wear­ing a shirt I like the colour of, I’ll pho­to­graph it be­side a dumpling. I pick lit­tle moments in my day-to-day life.” Set Life “I like the model to look re­ally nat­u­ral. The re­al­ity of it is that most peo­ple look a lit­tle bit awk­ward or in­se­cure when they’re just be­ing them­selves and be­ing open. I think we’re all a lit­tle awk­ward when we’re not per­form­ing for peo­ple, and I like that look. I find it tells a story.” (From $149, linethe­la­bel.com)
