WE ARE HERE
Freedom. In simple terms, we consider this a life lived without constraint, oppressive or self-imposed.
A life without regard for society's expectation of normalcy; one in tune with your own personal frequency, holding its own alongside those of the people around you, harmony be damned.
Through gritty 35mm scans of a Mancunian Queen & Slim, a mother/daughter Thelma & Louise, and Jaren as the face of Manchester’s 90s-driven youth scene, the Crew ruminate on the idea of finding freedom on the run, à la Queen & Slim...
Living life on your own terms, claiming space in the face of the stifling pressures of everyday life. With this story, we beckon a new wave of cultural icons, the everyday renegades who rebel simply by existing. Come as you are.
We are here.
