The City Talking - Susannah Darby and Luna

I shot some fashion images for the cover of the most excellent The City Talking in Leeds. The concept was based around the real story of the tragic death of circus owners wife Susannah Darby, who died in 1848 when an amphitheatre that used to be on the Headrow in Leeds collapsed during a performance, leaving her as the only fatality. Great, bizarre, eccentric theme for a shoot and a great team of people did amazing work to make this happen, especially our stylist Georgia 'G-Money' Thursting. 30,000 copies in and around Leeds and West Yorkshire so go pick one up.
