I wrote about my experience with failure and disappointment, where it took me, and what I learned from it for Issue 46 of The Essential Journal in association with The Campaign Against Living Miserably.
In an editorial centred around the menswear industry, I wrote about dressing well and the impact it has on mental well-being. @photographybymiles shot some of London’s most prominent tailors, brands, writers, bloggers and content makers, and I spoke to them all about their individual stories. From struggles and experiences with depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia to why dressing well has helped them in an otherwise cutthroat industry.
As part of #MoreThanABarber, Murdock have trained some of their staff in Mental Health First Aid, and are selling an exclusive CALM grooming kit. Decent. I went down to Murdock, camera in hand, to find out more and to recount my experiences of the barbershop environment. Featured in the shoot are Anthony Komodikis and Singh Gentry.
