Makers are some of my favourite subjects. I think it’s being part of a creative process that I enjoy so much – as well as the fact most of them have the most naturally photogenic studios I’ve ever seen, even if they’re too humble to admit it. One such person is the brilliantly talented Helen Robinson.
A natural born creative and macramé maker who’s work you’ve probably seen holding up one of the many plants in Conservatory Archives, (for those who don’t know what that is, it’s the plant shop come jungle in Hackney featuring on my bank statement and Insta-feed all too often).
Though she puts so much time, care and thought, along with endless bouts of creativity, into her work, she’s about as critical as I am when it comes to appreciating them. I think this dedication and my detirmination to really show these pieces and her process off which made the shoot all the more enjoyable.
These are just a few from the day.
You can see more of her work on her Instagram, in Liberty London & the Ace Hotel.
