Name: George Mavrikos
Year of Birth: 1981
Based in: London
The cover art for Patti Smithâ€™s Horses, shot by Robert Mapplethorpe, has been a constant inspiration and point of reference for its simplicity and attitude.
Persona by Ingmar Bergman has to be one of the most visually stimulating films I have ever watched.
I try to take on documentary projects that will provide me with inspiration and push my work further. I recently traveled to San Francisco to photograph the Womenâ€™s Motorcycle Contingent, which resulted on my first solo show.
Exene Cervenka and the late 1970â€™s California punk music scene have inspired the majority of my work.
Three people you would love to work with:
Benjamin Cho for never failing to surprise, Lotta Aspenberg and John Colver are two stylists I would love to collaborate with.
Who do you think is one to watch?
Dorothea Barth-Jorgensen at Elite London and Susie Mashford at Select are two girls that have amazing potential. I am expecting to see great work coming from new London designer Millie Cockton and photographer Amarpaul Kalirai.
