Cat Garcia’s Our Time offers a glimpse into the lives of Sir Paul Smith, Bella Freud and other creative Britons
Photographer Cat Garcia is behind a new book, Our Time, which showcases 60 of the UK’s most inspiring people, including pop artist Sir Paul Smith, Bella Freud, Sir Peter Blake, Kate Moross, Fergus Henderson, Polly Morgan, Giles Deacon, Gavin Turk, Beatrix Ong, Julie VerhĆven, Robbie Honey and Gary Card.
Garcia spent a day with each of her 60 subjects, which included designers, photographers, restaurateurs, filmmakers, curators and others, capturing what the publisher calls ‘a flash of insight into the day-to-day stories of Britain’s creative generation.’
Our Time has been curated by Olivia Triggs, founder of the Breed agency, and edited by Anthony Leyton. The words themselves have been provided by Nick Knight, Lulu Kennedy, Dita Von Teese, Tracey Emin, Livia Firth and others. Liz Farrelly served as editorial consultant.
The 252 pp. volume is limited to 1,000 copies, printed by London’s SPM Print on premium, tactile, uncoated paper from G. F. Smith.
