Bloom & Wild paid tribute to Pride heroes of the past, present and future
Flowers. They make us feel good. But they’re more than just pretty petals. Since the very first Pride marches, flowers have been worn by the LGBTQIA+ community as a symbol of solidarity, self-expression and flamboyant defiance. Perhaps most iconically by Marsha P. Johnson (1945 - 1992), a Black trans woman and a key figure in the 1969 Stonewall riots. For Pride, in partnership with LGBT Foundation, Bloom & Wild paid tribute to her and the other LGBTQIA+ trailblazers who’ve helped pave the way. The ones who, in turn, have motivated many more to do the same.
We spent a whole day in Spring Studios in Camden, photographing each influencer on their chosen coloured backdrop, whilst they were also being filmed. A hectic and creative day, full of charm and excitement working with a queer crew and for a thoughtful client.
