Acclaimed London-based fashion photographer Cecilie Harris has another claim to fame. As the founder of cult magazine Boys by Girls, she’s taken her love for shooting menswear in a new and unexpected direction. Capturing the uncertain male journey from adolescence to adulthood, the magazine enfranchizes the female gaze, and also empowers its subjects, letting them be the person they want to be, without fear of judgment, turning their apparent weakness into a strength. Along the way, she’s launched a few careers, with a number of models and photographers benefiting from her talent-spotting skills. The quiet beauty of her work is accompanied by obvious business acumen in driving high-end content as Head of Creative Services for Canon Europe.
