Toronto-based photographer Petra Collins
' resume reads like a List of Cool (Vice
, Richard Kern, Rookie Mag, Jacques
magazine), and her work has been heralded by a variety of media outlets including MTV, Complex
, and Urban Outfitters… and
she just graduated from high school this May.
We asked the 19-year-old shutterbug to snap something really special for us in her iconic teenage-diary style. Inspired by Meadham Kirchoff's spring '12 collection, her friend Tavi's "vomit pink" Tumblr tag
, and various other grunge, punk, and riot grrrl influences, Petra concocted an editorial for us… and we have to say we're shocked that this is the first time we've featured both Claire's hairclips and Prada sweaters in the same shot, since we already rock that combo ourselves. Thanks for the nudge, Petra!
