London-based Maltese photographer and visual artist Stephanie Galea has been making waves in the art world and industry by producing remarkable shots – and her latest work featured in a fashion editorial for Vogue Italia proves exactly why.

Galea used Birgu’s iconic religious procession as the backdrop for her artistic storytelling

IMG’s Monica Cima was at the epicentre of the editorial, captured socialising with the members of Birgu’s San Lawrence Band Club and other locals and residents as Galea snapped her beautiful shots.

Out now in @vogueitalia “Surely this was a righteous man.” The story follows the Catholic events held between Good Friday and Easter Sunday in Malta in the old town of Birgu. Devotees attend three days of religious events with the culmination being the Sunday procession where men (who have made a generous donation to the church) are bestowed with the honour of carrying the statue of the Risen Christ through the town. Here we meet Hilda, a wealthy Maltese widow, born in the town of Birgu and who has spent her whole life there. Each year, she puts on her best clothes and navigates through the festivities, showing off her best clothing to the other colourful Birgu residents.
