WELCOME to the METROPOLIS by David Hughes



Neon nights, darkness descends - anything can happen, getting lost in the glitter of city lights. Dark eyes, bloodred lips and punk liner are a celebration of the individual revelling in the hum of a night-time underworld. Graffiti and splashes of coloured light push this evening beauty story by photographer and director David Hughes and makeup artist Christabel Draffin into the realm of a futuristic dreamscape.

Megan Prescott, Rosario Dos Santos, Alice de Cherade, Sija Jure and Jade van Kooten.
