In a culture that thrives on immediate gratification, the photographer Caroline “Chuck” Grant comes across as refreshingly old-fashioned. “It’s a very natural process to be able to shoot and not have to talk about what happened right after it happened,” says the 25-year-old, who works almost exclusively with film, often using her Hasselblad camera. As a student at Parsons School of Design, in New York, Grant scored a major assignment: a portfolio of Mormon women in Utah for New York magazine. Her photos have since appeared in Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair, and Grant continuously collaborates with her older sister, the singer Lana Del Rey—most recently on the art for her 2015 album, Honeymoon. Grant will soon publish her first book, in which a trio of cool girls—Lily-Rose Depp, Alana Champion, and Samantha Adams—portray Persephone, goddess of the underworld. “It’s about experiencing your own version of Hades,” Grant says. “And finding that you actually prefer it to the life you used to have.”
