Birds by Chloé Claverie & Nick West
by Daniel Haim
Nick & Chloé joined forces to form a photographic duo in 2005. Early work focused on kids and the imaginary tales of childhood, and included shooting the first cover for Milk Magazine.
Chloé Claverie and Nick West hail from the suburbs of their respective cities of Paris and Dublin and both came to photography through circuitous routes. Chloé started as an art director, working for brands such as Givenchy and S.T. Dupont with DDB in Paris. Nick launched a self taught photography career in London in 1996 with commissions for the BBC and Channel Four including portraiture of Keira Knightley, Goldie and Will Smith. Nick’s work was exhibited in the V&A Museum in London in 1999 as part of a group exhibition marking the end of the century.
The following fashion shoot is titled “Birds” for Junior magazine.
