Interview: BOY/GIRL
Luca Curci
talks with the creative duo BOY/GIRL during FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES, the second appointment of BORDERS ART FAIR 2021, at Palazzo Albrizzi Capello

BOY/GIRL is a photography duo created by Liz and Jason, whose ability to bring a concept to life is second to none, quietly concentrating on every aspect of the brief itself in order to create exceptional photographs and films. Their mastery of light, paired with their creative direction and flawless abilities within post production, mean that no matter how big or small the project, these two creative polymaths are able to elevate every concept, delivering the highest quality product whether on set or location.  The starlets who appear in their work are always at ease a testament to BOY/GIRL’s friendly and quietly focussed approach on set. This too, allows creativity to thrive within an environment where every part of the team is involved and valued. Some of their clients are Vogue Brazil, Vogue Arabia, Harpers Bazaar Arabia, Bloomingdales, Harrods, Jurlique (skincare), Trevor Sorbie, Schon!, Factice Magazine and Glass Magazine.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
BOY/GIRL – Art for us is a really just a physical manifestation of an idea or thought being explored. It’s the beginning of a  journey. 

LC – What is your background?
B/G – Both Lizzie and I started out in very similar places, we assisted loads of different photographers and worked in studios painting coves until all hours of the night, and made a lot of coffee.  

LC – Where do you find inspiration?
B/G – We find our inspiration everywhere. Even watching the sun cross a room during the day, can inspire us. Film definitely. Music and nature for sure.

LC – How is it being an artist nowadays?
B/G – Its hard but I’m not sure if being in the arts is ever supposed to be a walk in the park. It’s something you just have to do. 

LC – Did you style change over the years and in which way?
B/G – Oh yeah I hope so, it’s a process right? You keep refining and exploring. Hopefully it’s always moving , but I think you always know you have a flavour, it’s just that your flavour is made up of your experience.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s name? 
B/G – The image we included in the exhibition was from a hair story we shot. It most definitely has an “Amish’ feeling to it, yet it’s a piece of cloth in a girls hair. I love the way we as humans find commonality/identities  in what we perceive. Like as children we all find faces in things. It is borrowing.
