With past ex­pe­ri­ence as a menswear de­signer and creative direc­tor for pre­mium men’s fash­ion brands, this Lon­don-based creative has now fo­cused on pho­tog­ra­phy, split­ting his time be­tween shoot­ing fash­ion cam­paigns and travel and re­portage work. For this is­sue, he trav­elled with friends and de­sign­ers Lucy Folk and Tamsin John­son to Tus­cany (page 145).

“I’m lucky that I get to shoot a lot of pretty fas­ci­nat­ing peo­ple, and Lucy and Tamsin are a case in point,” says Har­vey Kelly. “On shoots like this the process is very com­fort­able be­cause you have time. I’m not par­tic­u­larly metic­u­lous or pre­scrip­tive — I tend to just hang around and chat and try to take in bits and pieces, which feel beau­ti­ful or mean­ing­ful as they oc­cur. Ul­ti­mately, I’m look­ing to cre­ate some­thing that feels hon­est and hope­fully op­ti­mistic.”
