LONDON.- Introducing a new book of portraits and images from the working lives of 60 of the country's most inspired and inspiring people, including:


Beautiful, collectable and of the moment, Our Time is intimate photographic record of the personalities that define Britain's creative landscape.

The Book
Our Time documents the working lives of Britain's most creative talents to produce this series of quietly revelatory images. Featuring some of the most pioneering creative minds in Britain today, the book combines black-and-white and colour portraits with telling incidental details from the ordinary lives of extraordinary people. These captured moments form short photo stories about art and inspiration – they are snapshots of creativity at work.

Making Time
To create the series, Cat Garcia spent one day with a carefully curated selection of 60 artists, designers, photographers, restaurateurs, filmmakers, curators and other talents. Cat brought her camera into their homes and workspaces, accompanying them on their journeys and photographing them in the course of their day.

The result is a series of revealing portraits and fascinating still lifes from their environment (a model unicorn, a rainbow of paint pots, an antiquarian book…) that offer the viewer, for one stolen second, a flash of insight into the day-to-day stories of Britain's creative generation.

Olivia Triggs, founder of London artists' agency Breed, worked with Cat to select the diverse spectrum of subjects, ensuring every creative calling, from art and design to fashion and gastronomy is featured in the series.

To complement Cat's images, each photo story is accompanied by an insight into the life, work and personality of the subject, written by a peer and friend. Contributions have been provided by Nick Knight, Lulu Kennedy, Dita Von Teese, Tracey Emin, Livia Firth and others.

Our Time presents a window into the life, style and surroundings of the men and women shaping creativity in contemporary Britain, one day at a time.

London-based photographer Cat Garcia works across portrait, reportage and advertising photography, capturing people and places with a lightness of touch and a sense of storytelling. Her professional background in design and art direction brings a strong graphic approach to her images.
