Entitled London Pride, the Vogue June shoot covers a wide range of areas – from music, with The xx and the Artic Monkeys’ Alex Turner; to acting, including Imogen Poots and Tom Hardy; to models such asLara Stone and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley; to young talent, featuring Jeremy Irvine and Douglas Booth; to sporting stars such as Olympic swimmer Tom Daley and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith. Each shot captures each of its subjects in a way that reveals an insight into his or her personality – as seen in the picture of girlfriend and boyfriend Georgia May Jagger and Josh McLellan, who are caught in a romantic kiss.
“It was real young love,” Burns said of the pair. “”They are so into each other. I think that the picture shows something very sincere and sweet.”
The shoot’s concept developed through Burns, photographer Alasdair McLellan and Vogue features director Jo Ellison’s desire to create a story that was based on culture, rather than fashion, to celebrate Britain’s big year.
