“Gothic rock” was invented in 1967 by music critic John Stickney, who described a conversation he had had with Jim Morrison in a dark wine cellar, describing the gloomy location as, “the perfect room to honour the Gothic rock of the Doors”. From that moment on, rock music with the dark, mournful edge of the Doors – bands like Joy Division, Velvet Underground and Siouxsie and the Banshees – became associated with elements of the Gothic.

Inspired by the appeal that the gothic has always held for angst-ridden teenagers, photographer Hana Knizova and stylist Sabrina Henry have created a story celebrating the subculture in all its sombre glory. Shot before a backdrop of autumnal London, From Us With Love is a love letter to the misanthrope in all of us.
