FRESH

Every day I look at the work of very talented young photographers; but very rarely does one stop me in my tracks. Conor Clinch is one of those rarities. When I saw Conor's work, it was clear to me that he was someone totally passionate about his art. Craft can teach you so much, and in time it comes, but to have such a precocious eye for detail, at such a young age, was impressive. Now, having mentored Conor over the last few weeks, I've seen him go from strength to strength, pushing himself and inspiring those around him. Fresh is an apt name for this book, capturing young men and their attitudes to clothes in a unique way. But the word Fresh could just as easily be used to describe Conor's work. He evokes a unique view of the world which is entirely his own. Working with him has been a pleasure and I'm excited to introduce him to the industry.—RANKIN
