Harper’s Bazaar

Commissioned by Harper’s Bazaar magazine for poet and model Max Wallis, Allow Yourself This One Day is the final poem in Max’s d├ębut pamphlet, Modern Love.

Max traces the year-long course of a love affair and all its constituent parts: sex and sensuality, longing and loneliness, desire and disappointment, heady beginnings and inevitable endings; in a world dominated by high street brands, text messaging and social media. This film is stop motion, made from 1000 still images, each taken by Luca Nasciuti and edited by Alastair Cook.
