Adam Powell is an incredible stylist & art director, while quietly carving out his name as an installation artist as well. He also happens to be my very dear friend, always sharing with me his colourful and lofty ideas; the end results of which constantly exceed my expectations. He thinks big and large scale projects do not intimidate him at all. When I heard he was crafting an oversized egg and giant nest out of driftwood to shoot ‘just because’, you know that sounded like some kind of wonderful to me. I love creativity for creativity’s sake and this project on top of Easter being one of his favourite holiday scenes to shoot, for him comes from a very inspired place.
Being the boy from the bush that he is, he’s harboured a lifelong fascination with nature and beachcombing, with the luminescent colours of vintage fishing floats being a favourite find. He’s used that as inspiration to create some on a massive scale; whittling away at branches and painting them in fluorescent colours. I was intrigued to learn a bit more about this stunning creation.
