Photos series shows models with their mums

Former Burberry model Morwenna Lytton Cobbold is not only a pro in front of the camera but behind it too. In her exhibition, Models & Mothers, Morwenna captures candid moments of fashion models with their mothers, on medium-format film with a Mamiya RZ Pro II camera.

She explains that she wanted to document family dynamics through portraiture: ‘Coming from a world of high-production, large-scale fashion shoots, for my personal work I wanted to strip back all the artificiality and styling and make my images more about the people in them. I asked the sitters to wear their own clothes, do their own hair and make-up, and to arrive alone at their homes to create an intimate and personal portrait, a side of the sitters rarely seen’.
