The Setup: Earlier this summer, I spent an entire day hanging out with Nikola, just the two of us and a camera. The goal was personal in the sense that I’d set out to spend the season strengthening my editorial ideas, but in particular, conceptualising stories. In Nikola’s case, the concept¬†was narrated entirely in her own words. A few weeks after publishing that original story, I saw an image on her Instagram feed with Garance, also in this post. What immediately struck me was how similar the two of them were together. I knew I wanted to photograph them taking it one step further.

Two friends as close as sisters ditch classes to spend a day finding the world, and themselves. The bond is strong; it’s the perfect day to spend with someone whom you harbour no ill feelings towards. And really, nothing could possibly go wrong.

TGIF.
