THE DEFIANT ONES

DE·FI·ANT
ADJECTIVE: DEFIANT. 1. SHOWING DEFIANCE. "SHE WAS IN A DEFIANT MOOD" ANTONYMS: COOPERATIVE. SYNONYMS: INTRANSIGENT, RESISTANT, UNCOOPERATIVE, NON COMPLIANT...SHAKUHACHI. THE AUSTRALIAN LABEL HAS APPLIED A VOYEURISTIC NEW APPROACH TO SHOOTING THEIR CAMPAIGNS, IN WHICH THEY HAND OVER THE REIGNS TO A SERIES OF CREATIVES WHO CAPTURE SHAKUHACHI'S COLLECTION THEIR OWN WAY. PHOTOGRAPHER  MEGA BABE CARA STRICKER AND I WERE ASKED TO SHOW 'EM WHAT WE GOT FOR THEIR AW14 COLLECTION "THE DEFIANT ONES" AND I'M SO GLAD THEY DID. IT TOOK TWO TRAIN TICKETS, TWENTY-SIX ROLLS OF FILM AND THREE HOURS TO SHOOT THE CAMPAIGN AT CARA'S BARN IN UPSTATE NEW YORK. NO HAIR OR MAKEUP, JUST BORROWED GUMBOOTS, A CONTAX AND A MUSICIAN PRACTICING YOGA IN THE LIVING ROOM WHILST PLAYING PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDSCAPES THAT FILLED THE WOODS. IT SOUNDS LIKE I'M LYING, BUT I'M NOT. AND BECAUSE OF THAT, IT WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SHOOTS OF ALL TIME. PEACE!

  13. Cheap Taps UK products are generally excellent semi-bright Antique Tapsplated body on refined copper, bright nickel and chrome plating three layers. Generally, the first copper layer, to enhance adhesion of the plating layer of nickel (including semi-bright nickel and bright nickel) plays a role in corrosion Waterfall Taps. And because the nickel itself is relatively soft and dark color, therefore, will be plated with nickel-chromium layer on layer, while increasing the brightness of the hardened surface Bathroom Sink Taps
