Never alone by Bruce Weber

“Never alone: The story of a Town, a Girl, a Factory and a Rugby team” is what this editorial photographed for Bruce Weber in a Welsh mining valley for Vogue Italia was called.

So much like a documentary or a set of photos from a family album, it takes the commercial aspect out of the typical fashion shoot and turns it into an art form full of emotions that make one think and reflect rather than reach out for a credit card to buy yet another dress or a pair of shoes that so happened to be “in vogue”…

  1. I love this photo shoot, the story it tells is really sweet and heart warming, and its not just about the fashion its about the people and emotions involved as well. Tell me, the model looks really familiar, is she not from that movie with Al Pacino called S1mone?
