Director of Photography Molly Manning Walker continues her collaboration with Director Frank Lebon with two new projects, Gucci: Mémoire d’Une Odeur and James Blake promo: Can’t Believe The Way We Flow.

 

Gucci’s new campaign for Mémoire d’Une Odeur features many famous faces such as singer/actor Harry Styles, artist Ariana Papademetropoulos, actor Stanislas Klossowski de Rola, models Ellia Sophia, Chiek Tall, Aaron Sirainen and Zumi Rosow (who is the namesake for the Gucci Zumi bag).

 

The campaign highlights how smell is the strongest of the five human senses. Smell can remind you of memories you thought you had forgotten in your subconscious and take you back to a past time and place.

 

Molly also shot the new promo Can’t Believe The Way We Flow for James Blake, which is the new single from his critically-acclaimed album, Assume Form.

 

Can’t Believe The Way We Flow presents a juxtaposition of happy and sad moments in a group of couples from all walks of life, all linked together by a slightly crazed cupid who fires bird poo instead of arrows.
