The book contains a body of new work and never before published fashion and documentary photographs. Childhood friends, colleagues and models are collaborators to Weir, and their input has been vital when constructing her work and interpreting the theme. The models Jess Maybury and Lily Newmark , who have starred in previous works, are here captured as Mary and Child. Likewise, the stylist Camille Bidault-Waddington appears in a diptych beside her son Albert Cocker, also evoking Christian iconography. Harley’s childhood friend appears in a series of self-portraits depicting his experimentation with womanhood through crossdressing, published alongside private emails to his lover. Inspired by the multi-media artist Colette Maison Lumiere and her exploration of gender roles imbued in interiors, self portraiture and performance, Weir has created a series in collaboration with set designer Emma Roach, overpainting each of the images. A number of suggestive still-lifes appear throughout the book exploring the function of sexiness and the body as a commodity. The ending is a series of photographs documenting the labour of birth giving the viewer an encounter with the place with which we all came from.

The fifth instalment of Baron introduces the art director Jamie Reid and contributing fashion editor Camille Bidault-Waddington. The book also contains Weir’s limited edition campaign for Helmut Lang, which opens and closes the issue and will appear only in Baron.
