Follow the Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral on its trip around the world
2020-02-10 - Five cities, five photographers—and the most comfortable city stroller. Meet the Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral, a stroller made to stand out in the city. For this limited edition, we’ve asked five young, talented photographers from around the world to capture it in action.
We kick off our series with a young talented photographer from Shanghai: Jamie Hua. He likes to let the photos speak for themselves—and we are proud to see how Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral makes a clear statement in the streets of Shanghai!
You can follow Jamie’s work on Instagram: @jamie_hua.
Second in line is Natalia Pokrovskaya, an editorial and commercial photographer, capturing every moment of the Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral’s stroll through Moscow.
Natalia graduated from the department of photography at the British Higher School of Art and Design (Moscow) in 2013. Currently, she works as a freelance photographer. Among her clients are brands like CHANEL, COS, and WeWork.
In her own words: “My professional interests are not limited to just one specific thing. I am excited about doing different projects related to portraits, interiors, architecture, and visual storytelling.” Following the Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral on its way to explore every corner of her hometown was, for sure, a new challenge to her.

Shanghai, Moscow...and Paris! The city of love and romantic strolls on its grand boulevards, and streets with charming old houses...You will be surprised about the modern imagery of this vibrant city, captured by Marguerite Bornhauser's photography.
Marguerite Bornhauser was born in 1989 and lives in Paris. Her work has been shown in several places like the Museum of European Photography in Paris, Paris Photo in 2019, in the streets of Cincinnati, for the Cincinnati Art Museum. Also worth mentioning in Arles, during the festival of Photography, Deauville, during the Festival Planches Contact, at BETC agency, Agnès B, and the festival MAP, in Toulouse. Marguerite adds editorial work for her photographic research for her books “Plastic Colors,” "8", and “Red Harvest.” She collaborates with French and international magazines and newspapers as a photo-reporter and portrait photographer, as well as a fashion photographer.
At Bugaboo, we felt that Marguerite’s way to explore color in photography was the perfect match for our Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral, designed to brighten up every stroll through the city. But you can judge for yourself...

Expect the unexpected from Rita Puig-Serra, the talented Spanish photographer who contributed to our series. Rita lives and works in Barcelona, where she combines personal projects with commercial assignments and her work as an editor for Perdiz magazine.
After studying Humanities for her BA and completing a Master’s Degree in Comparative Literature, she studied Graphic Design at IDEP and Photography at CFD School of Photography and El Observatorio.
The great thing about the “Captured by” project for Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral is that we not only explore where this stroller can take you, but we have the chance to see all these famous cities from a new angle. Discover Barcelona with Rita, taking the Bee 5 Coral for a stroll.

Of course, our beloved hometown Amsterdam couldn’t be missing in this project. We asked Dutch photographer Lonneke van der Palen for her take on the city of the canals. The result is a surprisingly modern view of Amsterdam and some of the coolest places you can take the Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral out for a stroll.
Lonneke’s way of looking at the world is summarized in her quote: “There is so much beauty hidden in every corner of the street.” She loves simplicity and surprising details.
Through combining work made in the studio and outside, she creates unexpected associations and lovely surprises. Lonneke often uses two hand flashes that she always has with her, and that can illuminate things dramatically to achieve a cinematic character of the 'pictures' in her head: photos that are rooted in reality but never documentary. The pictures of the Bugaboo Bee 5 Coral in Amsterdam are again a nice proof point of this.
