TODAY WE’RE DELVING INTO MY EDITORIAL ARCHIVE FOR #TBT.

ELAINE CONSTANTINE IS ONE OF THE PROLIFIC FASHION PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT EMERGED FROM THE BRITISH FASHION SCENE IN THE LATE 90’S. 

A huge fan of the Northern Soul scene in Manchester where she grew up, she was asked to work for The Face magazine after being Nick Knights assistant, by then Art Director Lee Swillingham who commissioned her first fashion editorial. Elaine’s youthful and energetic style introduced a new generation of younger photographers to Face readers. According to Elaine, her work “came at a point when people had seen grunge fashion for a few years and needed something else to look at”

Elaine is also credited as writing and directing the film Northern Soul where she returned to Manchester to tell the story of two Northern boys in the 70’s whose lives changed forever when they discover black American soul music.

This shoot is one of Elaine’s classic energetic shoots where girls are having fun and hanging out.  I don;’t remember the location where we shot it, if I find out, I’ll add it into the text at a later date.
