Book description:FERN is Rosaline Shahnavaz’s latest exploration of the photographer- model relationship. Her book comprises a series of photographs, taken over the duration of a year, chronicling the time spent between Shahnavaz and model Fern. Over this time, both photographer and subject have progressed in life; moving city, house, beginning new relationships and growing closer to one another. Capturing those in- between moments, Shahnavaz focuses not on perfection but rather the individuality of those in front of her lens; the traits that set them apart. It is through this sensibility that Shahnavaz reveals the charm and character of her subjects. FERN renders us privy to their intimacy; as we come to the end of the photographs, we feel as though Fern is our friend too and perhaps we had been there for each of these moments.
