The first of our seasonal style series with photographer Felix Jackson, we asked him to compile the top springtime looks he’s captured around the city.
Armed with a film camera Felix Jackson takes to the streets on the lookout for fashionable individuals or out-there outfits that catch his eye.
As the name suggests, street photography is captured in a public setting, recording raw, unplanned moments in day-to-day life. It’s this that makes the genre so compelling to Felix. “I have no idea who or what I’m going to photograph, it’s a complete gamble,” he says. “When I do find someone, there’s always an undeniable authenticity to them. They didn’t know I would be stopping them on that day in that outfit.”
Camera: Nikon F50
Film: 35mm Kodak Ultra Max
Top photo spot: “Cuba Street and its side roads are Wellington’s fashion hub. I’ll always catch someone on Cuba Street and [find] the more playful vibe of the area is reflected in the fashion.”
Favourite spring outfit: Samuel Dunstall’s baggy trousers (see below)
Favourite spring trend: Fun sunglasses, and Doc Martens, “the shoe of Wellington and a trend that will never die.”
