Silence, Pylot Magazine
Commissioned by Pylot Magazine, Jane decided to blend documentary and fashion imagery to illustrate the tales of togetherness. Combining portraits of widows in their marital homes and young couples in love they tell a beautiful story about the power of love and the all-encompassing effect it has on our lives.
Maddie and Ross. Met whilst working at 'Cyberdog' in Camden and have been together for 3 years. "The most romantic thing we do is watching 'SpongeBob' when we wake up in the morning."
Emma and James. Met at a New Year's Eve Party and have been together for 2 years. "It was love at first sight for me. She talks a lot which is great because I don't, so she's the perfect balance for me."
Audrey Age: 85. Married to Denis for 12 years. He died in 2005. "What I most loved about him was that he loved me."
Peter and James. Met over coffee with friends during fashion week and have been best friends and flat mates for 4 years. "He is like the brother I never had. We are both super weird. Our alter ego personalities are 'Strangeli Asian' and 'MiShoozDunFit'."
David, Age: 86. Married to Phyllis for 63 years. She died in 2016. "What I loved about her was she was well educated, warm, and had a good sense of humour. She dressed elegantly on a small budget and could hold her own in debate, and yet was 100% woman. I loved her and miss her like hell."
Hollie and Casey. Met through Hollie's ex-boyfriend and have been together for 1 year. "We are going to get married on the 4th August 2022. I chose the date after playing a game on Facebook which named the day I would get married."
Bob, Age: 83. Married to Wendy for 57 years. She died in 2016. "I loved lots things about Wendy... She was always beautifully dressed with a super figure and very elegant. She was highly intelligent and extremely well organised. She made my life really easy being so competent. She was also a great mum and made all our friends and our children's friends feel very welcome."
April and Henry. Met at a gig in Liverpool when we were 18 and have been together 9 years. "Henry's the joker, and I'm a bit more serious."
Anne, Age: 82. Married to Derek for 54 years. He died in 2013. "What I most loved about him was his sense of humour and fun."
Alex and Aiden. Met at University 2 years ago. "We are a brand first, and a couple second."
Ros, Age: 84. Married to Norman for 53 years. He died in 2011. "What I loved about Norman was he never got cross so we never had any rows."
Michelle and Kim. Met at a birthday party and have been together 9 years. "It was love at first sight. We got married this year on a cliff top in Cornwall."
