“...What excites us in what we do is more the people we work with than the brief we are given,” says Amzalag.

“To use Bjrk as an example, we are dealing with such an exceptional person who is very generous and very creative, and that’s the kind of relationship we value, with any artist or photographer.

"We’ve been lucky enough to be able to find people who can engage in those kinds of conversations, which is very different and a lot more exciting than just looking at a brief.
