Photographer of the Week: Lisa Carletta

But the concept and artistic direction of the shoot we’re mainly looking at came from Marion Boucard, who works under the name Miss Marion. She used to be maverick fashion designer Vivienne Westwood’s press attache in Paris, and is now the founder and artistic director of the firm Brande Contente, which specializes in imaginative and original projects aimed at women, from live events to branded photoshoots. Here she is:

The occasional real-life housewife may from time to time have been spanked by her husband with a kitchen utensil – but surely never with eight of them at once!
