I first crossed Instagram paths with the prodigious Katie Silvester
in 2016 when she was touring Europe in a van. The photographs that emerged from that trip gave the phrase “travel envy” a whole new meaning, as she criss-crossed beaches and valleys taking sun-drenched photos of herself and friends
. When I later found myself in London on a work trip, I had to meet this free-spirited creative. Her adventures (and work) capture a carefreeness I want for myself, but often lack. So… I gladly channel it on these pages :). I am so excited to share these photos that she recently took of London-based model Sylvie Beam. The images capture what I love most about Katie’s work: an unselfconscious joy and possibility of adventure, which I hope rub off on me (and you) all the more in 2019.
