Ahead of Mardi Gras this weekend, we’re pulling focus to the Murphy Gozzard Hair Community’s latest collection, which once again breaks the mould, takes a stand and shows the real truth in beauty and love. The Love is Love collection showcases the salon team’s devotion to Marriage Equality, putting out a strong editorial statement to support a law which is shamefully still not a facet of Australian society. These images reflect the hope that it will be soon, adding the voice of that salon community to the chorus around the country demanding it.
The collection is the brainchild of business slash life partners and Murphy Gozzard Directors Brett Albury and Brett McKinnon, who asked three couples from their own salon community of clients to participate in the collection. This is not the first time the pair have utilised their clients as campaign models, with previous campaigns defying age and traditional beauty tropes to make important statements.
“We decided to keep the images very raw and shoot the collection in black and white using all natural light to really capture the intensity and depth of connection of the couples,” said Brett McKinnon.
“The whole day was captured by another good friend and collaborator, videographer Jarred Stedman who filmed each couple as well as Brett, [photographer] Cybele Malinowski and myself on our views of the importance of our community and what equality means to us,” Brett Albury continued.
Individual style and natural makeup was prioritised for the collection to show off adoration in its simplest form – a notion that many will be celebrating this very weekend.
