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. The outcome was a series of images that included the cover, created together with set designer Rachel Thomas. Barbara and Eve tell us how the collaboration came about and how they went about constructing and shooting these lively compositions.
