More Magazine New York

Natasha Lunn at More magazine New York commissioned Leon to shoot 'The Royal Roses' for a story appearing spring 2012.

Leon travelled up to David Austin Roses and set up studio in an upstairs outbuilding that seemed to house nothing but dead or dying wasps and pigeons. Very glamourous!

Despite the conditions Leon persevered and we will post the results when the story appears early next year.
