London based photographer Chris Craymer is launching his new book â€˜Romance’ and will be exhibiting his work in Mulberry stores across the world. The New York exhibition opened last week with a party that included a pink photo booth and vast quantities of chocolate kisses as well as a GB flag cake and a silent auction to raise money for the CFDA.
The book is quirky and fun, and the images are gorgeous. Speaking about the â€˜Romance’ Craymer said:
â€œI wanted to find subjects that allowed me to make emotional images, not intellectual ones, I hope the book gave people a happy feeling because that’s what I like to feel when I look at people.
The collaboration with Craymer follows previously successful collaborations with the likes of illustrator Julie Verhoeven, Cutler & Gross, McQueen’s Floral School as well as numerous others. Each store will display images from â€˜Romance’ and a silent auction will be held in every city. A limited edition version will be sold at each event that will include and signed and numbered print for £150.
Romance is priced at, £35 ($50) and will be available in Mulberry stores and leading book shops. The exhibition will take place in London on 20th May, Paris 8th July and Hong Kong 27th August.
