Jenny van Sommers. "I met Taylor Schwarz at an art opening in Clerkenwell and we started firing ideas at each other. Over four days we did 6 experimental shoots to work through some of these ideas.
I knew of the Mr Hare phenomenon and thought the shoes would be perfect because of their meticulous construction and classic style. I did not want to do a story with shoes that represented just one moment in fashion but that had a more lasting presence.
Taylor and I are both very interested in the properties of light and reflectivity. We used Mr Hare shoes as objects to explore this."
