Q&A with the photographer of Just Play Ian Boddy.

JS: Where did the inspiration for the Just Play shoot come from?

IB: Becky and I wanted to play around with the idea of boys and girls wearing pieces that didn’t obviously go together, including the notion of boys in girls clothes.  There is a nod to the Buffalo Boys* look pioneered by Ray Petri and Jamie Morgan which strongly influenced the 80’s.

JS: Have you worked with Becky before?

IB: Yes, though we do not get a chance to collaborate that often, due to our respective schedules and commercial jobs.  I really like Becky’s styling and she always brings a quirky element and has a great eye for detail.

JS: What type of camera did you use for this shoot?

IB: I chose to shoot the story on an old school Hasselblad 500, a camera that demands a very considered approach at a much slower pace than I usually work at.  I really enjoyed using this type of camera as it forced me to bring a new element to my work.
