Renowned photographer Iain McKell spent two years immersed in a community of young female artists, documenting their unique performances, parties and personalities.
The resulting visual diary is a celebration of freedom and self-expression, and a reminder to embrace the most creative parts of who we are.
Entitled New Girl Order, the book has an introduction by Gemma Padley that reads: "Candid shots of spontaneous moments became a much deeper, collaborative body of work about a group of young adults – a sisterhood – exploring their identities, both individually and collectively... New Girl Order transcends a particular time and place, for who hasn’t experienced a period of self-discovery or felt the thrill and sheer joy of being part of a group of like-minded souls."
A British fine art-documentary, fashion and portrait photographer who lives in London, Iain McKell enjoys working on long-term personal projects and has worked on commission for The Sunday Times, L’Uomo Vogue and i-D. This is his fifth photography book.
New Girl Order by Iain McKell is published by Hoxton Mini Press on 18 April 2019. An exhibition and book launch will be held from 6:30-10pm, Thursday 11 April at 12-18 Hoxton Street, London.
