The BIRKENSTOCK Personality Campaign
… is about diversity and character featuring authentic individuals in their own BIRKENSTOCKs.
BIRKENSTOCK is a truly universal brand; worn all over the world, by all kinds of people regardless of age, gender or race. Worn Birkenstocks take on the life of their owner, representing the many years and thousands of steps in one’s life. They become a part of your story. They are your story.
British photographer Jack Davison travelled around the world with the aim of capturing these stories. He created authentic and truly intimate portraits of real protagonists and their real Birkenstocks in their real surroundings. The portraits showcase amongst others Ryan McGinley, Luna Truffaut and Nobel Prize Winner Thomas Südhof.
The campaign continues in August 2019, to grow a timeless portfolio. The new portraits show Jack Davison doing a self-portrait with his dog. Legendary Grace Coddington, is captured at home in her favorite pair in New York. Founders of i-D Magazine Terry and Tricia Jones were shot in their Somerset barn with their Madrid and Arizona sandals.
Further portraits are set to appear in December 2019 issues for this longterm campaign that is set to appear in global print titles.
