Full Force | Daisy Ridley Shoots for the Stars

While Daisy Ridley’s anonymity earned her the role of a lifetime, she has now emerged as a force beyond Star Wars. At 25, the London-born actress is unafraid to be vulnerable and unwilling to let the magnitude of the franchise define her budding career. Our November cover star let us in on the profound influence of her family, why she insisted on “growing up” out of social media’s glare, and how she coped with the stunning fame of Star Wars. Here, we bring that strength and versatility into focus with a series of gritty, action movie–inspired shots. See her cruise through the air in cascading Gypsy Sport and glide across metal grates in Valentino haute couture in this month’s cover slideshow.

International Garden Photographer of the Year Still Life Project winners announced

WINNERS have been revealed for the Still Life Project section of International Garden Photographer of the Year. The project ran for two months, with winning images coming from the UK, New Zealand, USA, the Netherlands and Italy. The overall winner of the category is New Zealand based professional photographer Simon Schollum, for his image depicting a cross-section of a pomegranate.
Speaking about the photograph, judges said, ‘Simon’s still-life composition has been crafted with expert care and precision – every element has a sense of belonging. Colours and detail exude from every corner of the image and the pomegranate shines in centre-frame, each seed sparkling like new-born precious stones.’ Simon receives £500 and his image will be published in the IGPOTY 11 book, and will also feature in the exhibition taking place at Kew Gardens in February 2018.
