"[Alise Black Photographic Studios] The creative team behind MCVanities, we love them because they made comfortable the eclectic array of people we sent them… They operate in an environment filled with colour and movement where they have taken the daunting concept of sitting for a portrait and turned it into a candid session crammed with energy… They are the sum of their parts, which translated into the stunning collection of images they created… And they live in an ego-free zone that allows us to enjoy the fact that, given the opportunity, we all feel beautiful… Alise Black Studios – here at MCV we salute you. Thanks for making this project so exciting, so interesting and so completely unforgettable.“ Cath Pope, News Editor
