BIBI CORNEJO BORTHWICK

Go behind the lens for Pre-Spring 2017. Who better to capture the subtle nuances and individual spirit of JOSEPH's Pre-Spring/Summer '17 collection than another who follows an equally independent path: photographer Bibi Cornejo Borthwick.

Born in England and raised in New York, Bibi hails from an extraordinarily creative family - her mother Maria Cornejo is an established fashion designer known for her complexly draped womenswear, her father Mark Borthwick is a legendary photographer whose raw, over-saturated stills gave a visual language to the '90s and its fashion. Bibi shares a very similar aesthetic too; her body of work capturing the masculine/feminine dimensions and monochromatic palette that JOSEPH continually celebrates. Here, Bibi releases her favourite never-before-seen shots of our Pre-SS '17 collection...

On her aesthetic

I would say my photography is quite simple. I've always been attracted to the ordinary, and finding beauty in that - I love shooting mostly in black and white for the timelessness of it. A lot of my photography is capturing the quiet moments, maybe the more vulnerable ones.

On her inspirations

Artistically I love Agnes Martin, Ugo Rondinone, my father [Mark Borthwick], Cyprien Gaillard, and my very talented friend Hugo Mccloud.

On digital photography

I respect it and I'm adapting to it, I will always be drawn to film photography for the beauty of the process but in a time when things are moving as quickly as they are we need to move just as quick. I think it's amazing what you can do with digital photography and the ways you can manipulate it - there's an art in that in itself.
