Thai Hibbert ‘What makes us human’
London based fashion & portrait photographer, Thai Hibbert sets out to capture what makes us human with a focus on youth culture. This has made for a real & honest archive of work & I am becoming a big fan. Obvi’s I love his latest series with Emily Smith. Here is what Thai told us about the day…
“Some times my favourites shoots are the most spontaneous, & this one was no different. I met up with Emily to test out my new underwater camera but i was struct with inspiration when i saw the location. I’ve always had a love for the council estates in London & felt like it would be cool to capture her in front of one.
She had such a cool energy about her that made capturing her effortless. To me the series encapsulates life as a young girl living in the estate, & also helps to dispel a lot of the negative connotations that come along with it. There are so many beautiful people living in these areas & Emily just happens to be one of them”.
