Spying on other people has become easier than ever in times of social media stalking. But while we can hide ourselves behind fake profiles, the classical secret agent needs to dress appropriately to go undercover. Dark leather jackets, fisher hats, big capes and long coats are just some of the staples making sure we can explore normcore at its best. An earthly toned colour palette ranging from dark green to cognac adds to the camouflaging quality of the clothes and helps to stay anonymous. Equipping her models with nostalgic cameras, old typewriters and folders full of secretive files, photographer Charlotte Hadden caught exactly this calculating ruthlessness of the observer – while simultaneously capturing that uneasy feeling of the potentially observed.
