Part two of our collaboration with photographer Juergen Teller and model and artistic director Adwoa Aboah. This time in her adoptive home city with a cast made up of the friends and family she shares her West Village home with.
‘New York is my second home. I have made a nest here and created a community of the bestest friends in the world. Most of them are Londoners on a rite of passage, living away from home for the first time. New York is exciting, offering something day and night. It has skylines that go on forever, intimidating and suffocating but always beautiful and never boring.’ – Adwoa Aboah
‘I have known Adwoa since I was five when we used to play dolphins on the sofa. Her sensitivity means that she has a deeper understanding of others and she has a great sense of humour so we always have fun.’ – Jean Campbell, model and ambassador of elephant crisis fund #KnotOnMyPlanet.
‘I knew Adwoa and I would be proper, honest-to-goodness friends the night we walked through Manhattan and over the Williamsburg Bridge, aimlessly wandering and purposefully talking for hours.’ – Jonah Freud, photographer, filmmaker and writer.
‘Adwoa and I went from being sisters to being best friends who happen to be sisters. We laugh about everything and anything and when we fight it’s usually over the remote. My favourite memories of us together include road tripping, dancing, cosy Sundays, long phone conversations, big hugs when we haven’t seen other in ages and bigger hugs when we’re about to leave each other for a while.’ – Kesewa Aboah, artist and Adwoa’s sister.
