A is for Arsenic: Black Heart

When she isn't jetting off all over the world to play in her band Angelspit, or to DJ as part of Industrial Girl Bike Gang, Amelia Arsenic also has about a billion other talents. 

One of these talents includes making... things. Many things, it turns out. Jewellery, makeup, clothing, bags - all of them with unique designs and the best materials. 

I have previously worked with Amelia, shooting the lookbook for her first A is for Arsenic collection, shooting images that were turned into graphics for her second collection, and now helped her shoot the lookbook for her new Black Heart jewellery collection.

Here are a few shots I took, which Amelia did some awesome editing on! I'm sure you can expect to see a few more soon.

A is for Arsenic: Crime and Punishment


Most of you have probably seen this by now, but I took part in an amazing project with Amelia Arsenic  for her new line of tshirts and prints: A is for Arsenic: Crime and Punishment

"Crime and Punishment is a collection inspired by vintage fetish magazines, the drama of the silent screen and a dash of murder. The imagery combines film noir inspired bondage portraiture with monochromatic graphic interventions."

 We actually took the first step on this project last year, and it is amazing to see the results. Amelia is extremely talented, taking this project from conception through to production (she printed everything herself by hand), and then collaborated with others to create a polished lookbook. The tshirts themselves are so comfy to wear, and look fantastic, I'd highly recommend grabbing one while you can!

Here are the original photographs (which Amelia then turned into graphics), which I took in the White Womb studio - models are Mam'zelle Maz and Nina Kate


And below are some of the gorgeous lookbook images - the results of a lot of hard work!
