This series is unique. The people in these photographs were not told how to look, their expression was exactly how they felt at that specific moment in time. I sat each model in a pitch black room, I played each model the song (Tom Odell’s) Another Love full blast. I told them what to wear, how and where to sit but the emotion portrayed and captured on their face’s is completely them. I chose a specific point in the song I felt that the specific person was embracing and I had a studio flash head set up so that when I took the photograph light was shone onto the model for a second to allow the photo to capture exactly how they felt. The fact that the model’s had no idea when the photo was to be taken and they could not be seen made how they feel so much more easier to capture and in turn the effect so much more realistic.
You’re witnessing an expression of four peoples inner most thoughts.
