Parts of the Process — Photographic duo Metz + Racine take us behind their shoot for Living magazine’s design special

Posted 25 July 2017 Interview by Indi Davies

Barbara Metz and Eve Racine set up their eponymous, London-based studio in 2000, and have since applied their characteristically playful approach to still life imagery for the likes of Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Vogue and i-D. Their work has also been regularly featured in Italian interiors publication Living – a supplement of the Corriere della Sera newspaper – who last year approached the duo to capture a selection of products for their dedicated design edition.

Barbara and Eve tell us how the collaboration came about and how they went about constructing and shooting these lively compositions.
