Can we see something new in convention?

Henry Swanzy
Planning and art direction of a photographic series to capture Henry Swanzy furniture within an abstracted domestic setting. Consistent use of foliage provides colour, scale and drama; whilst emphasising a ‘natural’ presence within the controlled studio environment. Resulting images strike a balance between conceptual / practical, inspiration / documentation, and emotive brand / physical product.
