Crystal blue ponds contrast the external world which finds itself in a continuous struggle in favour of honesty in a post-truth epoch. Within turquoise walls, a righteous boy looks out upon the corrupted monologues that resist elimination. Unlike the pessimist who gives up when faced with little resistance, William Franklyn-Miller sees light in a system submerged by negative connotations. Determined to create dialogue, he distracts reality from its unfairly predicted destiny, revealing a trail of beauty. Locating perpetual peace in the embrace of our galaxy's greatest star. The world is no simple matter but its pleasures are.
Photographer Doreen Kilfeather photographs young actor and social media influencer William Franklyn-Miller in theatrical surroundings somewhere in the depths of Ireland. Growing up in a modern plot which might seem foreign to older generations, he is an entrepreneur of the future, manoeuvring new landscapes. The mouldings of a young man etch into his conversations. Boyish giggles still line his lips. A bursting kid in one moment, whilst next, a serious teenager speeding toward manhood. Caught in a three-way mirror, his journey holds more than the average boy his age.
Stylist Ciana March employs retro fashions for her motif. William in a 70s get-up complements his environment. Bold primary colours, thick patterns, and wide flares coincide with quirky tapestry. In 14 short years, several wonderous places have been home to the boy at one point or another. From Australia to Ireland, his opportune life lead him down a path to animate a cosmopolitan existence. As a public and open figure, his life is displayed so purposefully but with vulnerability.
