Millicent is an important example of a British female artist, her Polaroids combine fashion and the erotic, they verge on pornographic but cleverly never cross that line.
Millicent was my first girlfriend and we have grown up collaborating and travelling together. We have a special, honest relationship now and are best friends – she’s the only person I trust to tell me if something is “fucking shit”. I have great admiration for her continual use of unconventional models and only photographing those who have a strong story and who personally inspire her.
She empowers her female subjects by showing the body in varying forms and not shying away from displaying her own body on her social media.
