GREEN WARRIORS 2018

At Green Is The New Black we get to meet some seriously inspiring people. People who are changing the world with their everyday actions. We strongly believe that every little bit counts which is why we are always harping on about #LittleGreenSteps to #LiveMoreConsciously.

This is our 2nd list of Green Warriors, a list which we will continue to do annually. In 2017, we started in Singapore. This year, we head to Hong Kong and next year, we’ll go beyond, all over Asia and we’re open for nominations.

Our 2017 photo series focused on flowers and leaves. This year, “Waste” was selected as the inspiration for the shoot. A pertinent, pressing issue in today’s society, waste is often wrongly perceived as something dirty that we should get rid of. The truth is that waste should be seen as wealth, which can be turned into useful raw materials to produce new consumables such clothes or even architectural infrastructure. This is part of a new model of thinking which might just save our planet from dying: It’s an integral part of Circular Economy.

So for this year’s shoot, the team decided to shoot the Green Warriors literally naked and covered with waste (them, not us!). After getting their hair done by Team Salon, we used all types of waste to adorn our models: Food waste, plastic and even textile waste, to match the type of project the model was/is involved in. Sadly, it was incredibly easy for the team to collect a huge amount of waste (for the shoot) very quickly; with plastic bottles and food leftovers from hotels, clothing samples from fashion brands and even just rubbish picked straight off the streets of Hong Kong and Singapore. The results, however, are breathtaking.

For the second time, the collection of portraits were shot by acclaimed French fashion and music photographers Flavien Prioreau and Zoe Kovacs. Flavien made a name for himself as a portraitist for actors, artists, and musicians, and has shot for Rolling Stone, Elle, Universal Music and with celebrities like Diplo, Karlie Kloss, Jean Dujardin and Barbara Palvin. Zoe Kovacs is known for her creative portraits and together with Prioreau, captured the beauty of the Green Warriors.

Without further ado, please meet the class of 2018 (in alphabetical order cause we fair).
