Bex Day, a photographer and director residing in London, is now 28 and publishes her work regularly in magazines such as Vice, Garage, It’s Nice That or even Dazed and Confused. The spread presented here entitled ‘Children of Covid’ was recently published in ANOTHER magazine together with a text by Dominique Sisley. The photographs deal with the topic of the emotional and physical influence of Covid-19 on children between the ages of four and twelve in the UK.
We gladly quote : “With the UK slowly crawling out from its third national Covid lockdown, the focus is now shifting to the fallout. Over the last twelve months, reality as we know it has been razed to the ground, with shops, schools and social spaces shutting their doors and – where possible – moving online. These changes have been difficult for everyone, but particularly for children, who have been stuck in this digital, stimulus-starved existence for some of their most formative years. According to Unicef, Britain’s kids have lost up to 700 million days of school education since the pandemic began – so how will this affect them, both in the long and short term? It’s a question that Bex Day has been musing over.” Read the complete interview on the Net. GoSee : anothermag.com///covid-generation-portraits-of-the-uks-pandemic-children

Elliott WILCOX c/o MAKING PICTURES photographed British actor and producer Raff Law for the cover of GQ Hype. Rafferty Law is the son of legendary actor Jude Law and Sadie Frost. He was recently cast for the lead role in Sky’s modern adaption of the classic Oliver Twist. And is slowly but unstoppably making his way out of his smart father’s overwhelming shadow.
GQ Hype writes : “Watching ‘The Hat’, the 2020 short film starring Raff and Jude Law, the first thing you notice is just how much the 24-year-old actor looks like his father. It shouldn’t really be the most remarkable thing about the short by Darren Strowger, the partner of Raff Law’s mother, Sadie Frost, which was shot on an iPhone during the first lockdown (with a musical score by The Who’s Pete Townshend and all proceeds going to charity).
