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.”

Have a look at some of Cobbold’s portraits below, all sourced from Vogue UK!

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.

    Nishe: Exploring Emotions Through Photography

Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.
