It was a Thursday in October, forecasted to rain yet destined for sunshine. Almost as though mother nature gave us a warm smile and a knowing wink, the morning transformed into the perfect backdrop to shoot our last ‘New Faces’ of 2020, for none other than the Joy Issue.
They arrived just how we love to see them, simply as they are: bare faced, in sweats, jeans, perfectly worn in sneakers and their favourite band tee. The time ordinarily dedicated to sitting in a hair and make up chair was spent choosing the right playlist, slipping into the dreamiest Christopher Esber swimmers and diving straight in. Who was first to jump? Akira. To the sounds of none other than Lochie himself, who's song 'I Don't Know' has been on repeat ever since.
Photographer and filmmaker Lilli Boisselet captures the moments from the day on location with Akira, Jade, Lochie and Patricia, photographed by Olivia Repaci for the last issue of 2020.
