Photographer, DJ, and former Burberry model Morwenna Lytton Cobbold deglamorizes her subjects but in a touching and intimate way for her latest project.
Armed with a Mamiya RZ Pro II single lens reflex camera loaded with medium format film, Cobbold went to her subjects’ homes and conducted a low-key photo shoot featuring fashion models with their respective mothers. Cobbold was quoted as saying in an article by Vogue UK, “Having worked and travelled around the world as a model myself since I was 16 years old, the importance of time at home with family has become increasingly apparent.” As a photographer, Cobbold said that she has learned “all the basics” of photography through her mother’s Nikon FE2, and that she has even “built a darkroom in our old bike shed at home.”
As instructed by Cobbold, her subjects donned their own clothes and did their own hair and make-up to showcase “a side of the sitters [that] is rarely seen.”

Cobbold’s work are currently showcased in the “Models & Mothers: An Exhibition in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer” held at The Gilbert Scott Restaurant in London until October 31. The photographs will also be part of a book “Mother,” a fundraiser also for the benefit of the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.
