Fashion shoots are by definition concerned with the surface of things. Styles precisely timed for release and executed on the day to coincide with the seasons and to capitalize to the fullest on the actor’s upcoming projects. It’s a synecdoche of opportunity and effort, scored by a frenetic pace that leaves the images oftentimes errant to the day’s experiences. This begs mention because much like how we perceive editorials far removed from their inception and maturity, Jamie Campbell Bower’s images and body of work only goes so far toward illustrating a composite character. The conversation concerning his career provides little parallel to the aroma of ordered activity ordaining the day’s shoot. Jamie explains at length about the laissez-faire approach to fate and opportunity, while transversely revealing himself as an artist fully aware of the artistic responsibilities at hand. Questions of the past are met with a balanced and introspective perception, the present with a wide-eyed regard for that which yields such circumstance, and the future with open and anticipatory arms. Sifting between all three periods, Jamie delves into the circumstances of his definitive years, and the prospects of those yet to come.
