CARRI ANGEL PHOTOGRAPHY
and ANGE HARPER
When model and artist (and elf) Ian Hencher learned that we were doing a forest-themed issue, he knew he wanted to collaborate with a team that could “connect with nature and fairy tales.” So he went to photographers Carri Angel and Ange Harper, as well as designer Helen Nevett of Under the Ivy—all of whom we’ve featured previously!
“We agreed that these characters needed to belong in the forest as opposed to glamorizing them,” Hencher says, explaining how Nevett conjured “mossy garlands almost blending into the trees and the subtle fairy wings that catch the light” to create an immersive, believably magical quality. And though the lost children of Neverland were mentioned, the story was left intentionally vague. Angel, Hencher says, “likes to loosely base her stories on fairy tales and allow viewers to interpret.” What kind of story do you imagine in this enchanted wood?
