Photographer’s agents Horton-Stephens are in the habit of producing an annual publication to celebrate and promote the work of their fine stable of talent. Last year they interspersed the work of their photographers with interviews with some of the biggest names in advertising, adding insight to the relationship between image-makers and the ad world.
This year the emphasis has been placed firmly on small-timers, with the agency seeking out a new generation of talented creatives working in studios across Europe (one of them’s one of our own Callum Green). The questions posed to them explore the future of the advertising industry, with answers paired with the work of a Horton-Stephens photographer.
The whole package has been put together by Freddy Taylor, a designer who works for KesselsKramer by day and on a variety of side-projects by night. Of the publication he says: “The design deliberately divides images from words in order to give equal weight to both; with a simple cross referencing system in place to allow readers to pair contributions. A basic uncoated and gloss ‘copy-stock’ was also chosen to reflect the annual’s front cover image.”
