It's spring and photographer Amy Gwatkin has taken to photographing boys running wild, amongst the blossom trees blooming all over London. The London-based photographer who has collaborated with designers like Cooperative Designs and Scott Ramsay Kyle, worked with stylist Alex Cunningham to come up with this beautiful ode to spring.

"I used to work in a mens' vintage shop in Notting Hill - in the spring the blossom was so overwhelming, I used to dream about photographing boys in the trees, but for some reason I never got around to it. (Too busy, too shy to ask boys!...) With every subsequent spring that came around I wanted to do it more and more so this year I got Alex Cunningham on the case too. We took inspiration mainly from the beauty of the blossom itself, but also from 'Lord of the Flies' and 'Swallows and Amazons' and the ideas of boys running wild in their own imaginative world."
