House of Holland

AUTUMN WINTER 2018 BY DEAN DAVIES PART 2

What do you want to be when you grow up? This was the question that photographer Dean Davies posed to his group of teenage subjects in his new photo series featuring looks from our Autumn Winter 2018 collection - entitled “Grow Up". Known for his candid photography style inspired by teenage and suburban nostalgia, Dean’s work is part high fashion and part documentary – the ideal choice for re-imagining football scarves, oversized puffas and athleisure within the context of teenage hopes and future aspirations.

 

The shoot took place in the working class suburbs of Manchester & Bristol, chosen as a reference to both Dean’s current hometown of Bristol and his childhood in Merseyside and Henry’s hometown near Manchester. Dean’s works often takes his cues of familiar houses, community, familial relationships and youth culture.

 

Shooting friends and sisters in pairs in their hometown, Dean questioned his subjects on what they wanted to be when they grow up.

When I was younger I was determined to be an author, so I suppose I've always had the same mind-set surrounding my future career.”
