Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration launch party photos: meet Liz Johnson-Artur

We've worked together since way before the dawn of Amelia's Magazine. Meet Liz Johnson-Artur: a fabulous photographer who still shoots on film. She's answered a quick Q&A alongside the last photos from my ACOFI launch party.

Liz Johnson-Artur and myself go back a loooong way. In the days when I was interning at Arena Magazine (RIP) I accompanied her on shoots in Brixton as a fashion stylist's assistant, and then when I became determined to become a photographer I began to assist her, memorably on a series of fashion shoots featuring posh girl models posing in posh country houses for the high society rag Tatler. They liked her quirkiness, and for us it was a great chance to see how the really rich live.
