TODAY’S EDITORIAL ARCHIVE IS ANOTHER ITALIAN VOGUE CLASSIC BY ELAINE CONSTANTINE FROM NOVEMBER 1999.
Elaine’s photography often put young people in situations you would expect to find them in whilst showing off exaggerated expressions, body language and colour. She would recollect memories from growing up and re-appropriate them into her photography. That personal element is what gave her pictures the edge of which many people tried to emulate but never achieved.
This shoot took place on the Isle Of Wight which is not only a county but the largest and second most populated island in England. Located in the English Channel, it’s approx 4 miles (6 km) off the coast of Hampshire separated from the mainland by the Solent.
I remember it being pretty cold when we were shooting as it was coming up to Winter and it was very windy there. Even though the models were really cold ( wearing mainly summer outfits) Elaine managed to capture fun and energy from the models, allowing the freezin weather to go undetected in any of the shots.
