FACES PLACES LACES

If you could keep one pair, what would you choose?

Facesplaceslaces depicts the marriage between people, their footwear and the pavement it steps on. This project delves deep into the inspiration behind individual’s footwear choice and how this alone, can provide an insight into a person and their environment.  As a self-proclaimed “sneakerhead”, this project follows the passions of London-based photographer Arron Watson-McNab; connecting the different components of sneaker culture throughout different urban environments.
