Alice Hawkins looks like Dolly Parton and likes to hang out with gangsters, showgirls and topless models. She also happens to be one of the fashion world’s hottest photographers. Alice has been making serious waves in the Fashion industry, from the minute she walked out of the doors of Camberwell Arts College in 2002. At 28 years old she has produced a wealth of highly diverse and individual fashion and advertising work. Her work is renowned for both its use of colour as well her intimacy with her models. She made the famous Agent Provocateur sexy ads with Maggie Gyllenhaal, works closely with ID, Harpers Bazaar and Arena and shots almost all of the biggest top model on the market…
Her Photography however transcends shooting the next girl for the season, as she turns her camera on the everyday, as well as herself. As she explains:
I need to meet my subjects on a normal level. I can then embrace my project and not treat it like work
For someone who tries not to treat her photography like work she has been a busy bee, working consistently for editorial and advertising clients taking her the length and breadth of Britain as well as Internationally.
