Alice’s Adventures Alice Hawkins • With contributions by Katie Grand, Mark Haywood, John C. Jay, Frith Kerr and Nick Knight 56
‘Alice Hawkins has the audacity that fashion photography needs’ Nick Knight
Displaying an uncommon flair for storytelling that imbues each image with a sense of the sublime, Alice Hawkins’s work explores the importance of individuality, role play, dressing up, fantasy and playfulness, all of which have become hallmarks of her career. Her photographs for some of the world’s leading fashion magazines document men and women found on ‘road trips’ to far-flung locations. Alice’s Adventures presents Hawkins’s sketchbooks and behind-the-scenes polaroids alongside final images. It features such world-famous icons as Donatella Versace, Hugh Hefner, Dakota Johnson and Gisele Bündchen, as well as street-cast locals styled by top fashion editors for publications such as POP, LOVE, i-D, Ponystep, Garage and Vogue. Organized by location and interspersed with short contributions from some of Hawkins’s key mentors and collaborators, Alice’s Adventures is a mesmerizing and highly original visual journey that will inspire those interested in a fresh, contemporary approach to fashion and photography.
