Iceland: 64º North

photoshoot, titled 64º North, was shot in October 2016 in
South East Iceland during a bout of very capricious weather. Grant
Thomas captured the shoot, while our Fashion Director Tona Stell
headed styling. In between shots the team ran back to their van to
thaw their hands while Bunny Hazel Clarke retouched Grace Gao’s
make-up with Tom Ford Beauty. Elvire Roux (through rain, sleet and
snow) styled Grace’s hair, using Sachajuan products to keep
everything in place, if only for a moment. Thomas Dhanens, Grant
Thomas’ photographic assistant, was there to advise on lighting and
changing weather conditions.

This editorial was most definitely our most extreme yet – though
shooting in blistering heat in
was no walk in the park either. In the evening the team
returned to the hotel to warm up while watching the northern lights
glittering on the horizon.

Hundreds of kilometres north of the shoot, Maria Alafouzou and
Claudia Legge were traipsing around in temperatures of -14C,
researching and photographing their story
Undiscovered Iceland
for Volume 13.
