Spontaneous, candid and uncompromisingly honest, Louise Parker’s Work Series grants backstage access to the often-idealised world of high fashion. With her snapshot style, and using either a Contax T2 or Fuji X100, Parker captured her first few seasons walking for the likes of Saint Laurent, Chanel, Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli and Topshop, among others. “I started Work Pictures right when I began modelling. The fashion industry felt like such a foreign and intimidating world that I knew I needed to document every aspect of it. I understood I had access to something that people craved but in my opinion, rarely saw the true side of,” she says. Here Parker shares a retrospective of some of her favourite captures during those formative years.
