The first time I heard about Alexandra Catiere was back in New York in 2005, when whilst assisting on a fashion shoot, I went to visit the studio of photographer Billy Jim. I remember Billy showing me some very beautiful and melancholic work of a girl, who used to assist Irving Penn. Fast forward 3 years, I saw her pictures again, this time accompanying one the stories I wrote for Dazed. Still, it's those images of people captured on buses in Moscow, which I saw back in 2005, that keep coming back to my mind now.
