Next up in our series of posts introducing you to the Savage Senses team and collaborators: our amazingly talented photographer Joseph Moran! Find below a brief Q&A I did with Joseph at his studio. Can’t wait to show you guys the full look book for the new collection featuring Joseph’s photos soon, but you can preview a few images from it on Racked! - Farah
How did you get involved with Savage Senses?
My husband was having dinner with Gary [Nelson, Savage Senses founding partner], who he’s known for a hundred years, and he hadn’t seen Gary for a long time so Gary didn’t know that I was taking pictures. Gary went to the website the next morning and sent me an email saying we should be working together on this project.
What were your favorite pieces to shoot from the new collection?
I think it was probably the sweatshirt dresses. I just was intrigued by the way they actually fit on the body. I was not expecting that. They looked one way when you pulled them out of the bag, but when they actually wrapped around the body, I thought they were fantastic. It jumped in a way that I wasn’t expecting, and they look like you could go anywhere in them.
How does water inspire you?
The perfect place to be is the beach. Lying in the sun with the waves coming in…I can’t think of a better space. Whenever I’ve had to do meditations or group meditations where they ask you to go to a place for quiet and serenity, I always think of myself on the beach. That’s the first place I’ll go to.
