i-D’s new Female Gaze issue is the magazine’s first to be shot entirely by female photographers. For the special edition, cover star Adwoa Aboah has been photographed by Harley Weir, Inez van Lamsweerde and Letty Schmiterlow.
Each showcases the different photographers’ style and approach, as iD’s editor-in-chief Holly Shackleton explains: “From the empowering lens of Inez, to Harley’s mesmerising vision of modern womanhood and Letty’s raw, honest portraits captured at Adwoa’s home; the results are a beautiful, multi-faceted study of a girl.”
The issue is a who’s who of exciting photography talent, also featuring shoots by Collier Schorr, Venetia Scott, Zoe Ghertner, Cass Bird, Petra Collins and Brianna Capozzi. i-D has also commissioned a series of films directed by Eloise King, also starring Adwoa, named Gurls Talk after the model and actor’s feminist initiative.
