Molly Parkin describes her shoot for LYRA

Molly Parkin had the best idea for her photo shoot in issue 1

… I could hurl numerous garments together, it is so easy for me, and I thought that I wanted to do something different. I don’t recoil in shock and horror when I take my make up off and after I cleaned my face. I could be like this happily in front of myself and in front of the lover or anybody. There is something moving about it, the kindness and connection in that bare face. So, let’s shoot that.

And here’s the woman herself talking about growing old, and the beauty this brings.
