Food and the seemingly mundane are some of the things you’ll see in Alix-Rose Cowie’s photographic dreamscapes. They are sometimes unreal, sometimes too real, sometimes funny, but always totally captivating. You’ll find your eyes darting around your screen for ages, running over every carefully considered detail. So it felt fitting to chat with the super-talented writer, editor, photographer and occasional jewellery model about the things we’re all navigating together right now – food and the mundane.
Things I say to my partner in lockdown:
For creative pursuits: Obsess over everything that could go wrong. Do it anyway. Feel like you did a bad job. Seek external validation. Come to love what you made. Send the invoice.
Alix’s most recent work is a series of self-portraits shot during lockdown for Pichulik’s new collection. She wears earrings from the collection in her profile image above. Next to this, another image shot for Pichulik, with ikebana by Cynthia Fan and styling by Gabrielle Kannemeyer.
