Tues 18th Jan: Hillman Studio Visit
Yesterday I returned to the space I used to share with Hillman Studio and Andy Macgregor. Its now totally dedicated to all things Hillman and every surface is covered with thier props and paraphanalia like this brass instrument back pack that hangs above the door. You can see Andy Macgregor modelling it for its orignal purpose in this image by Tim Walker. You can watch a brilliant behind the scenes video from this shoot here featuring footage of Lisa Cant in the makeup chair and Andy Hillman walking on stilts. The little tin toy plane in the book shelf was a present from Walker with whom Andy built the unforgettable life size spitfire for Vogue. To see that monumental work and all of the other magical worlds Hillman studio create, head over his portfolio at D&V Management.
(Thanks to Alex for demonstrating one of the wooden hats left over from a shoot with Miles Aldridge and now serves as an incredible ornament / sculpture.)
