For their latest installment of SELF, Saint Laurent enlisted six photographers to create exclusive artworks for the brand. In this stunning visual series that blends art and fashion into a singular message, photographers Harry Gruyaert, Olivia Arthur, Alex Webb, Takashi Homma, Daesung Lee and photography duo, Birdhead, present a mesmerising tale of harmony and relationship. The artistic project was taken across six cities: Paris, New York, London, Tokyo, Shanghai and Seoul, with the aim “to intangibly connect the world”.

To celebrate the launch of SELF 07, the artworks were also exhibited across the six different cities.

As a street photographer, I’ve long been drawn to the brilliant colour, searing light, and intensity of life that I first encountered in the streets of Latin America and the Caribbean. So when I was asked by Anthony Vaccarello to photograph Los Angeles in the spirit of Saint Laurent for SELF 07, I immediately thought of three culturally-rich downtown neighbourhoods—the Pinata District, the Flower District, and the Fashion District—whose deep shadows, brightly painted walls, and vibrant streets are reminiscent of Mexico, where I’ve often wandered.
