I was watching a TV show and saw very graphical black and white paintings on a wall. I started thinking if I could do something with that idea. Idea about human form under black sheets took me to a story about nocturnal awakenings and nightmares. I named the images after the feelings nightmares give us.
Winter is coming. I managed to get the shot from the old railway station before snow (and before they demolish the whole thing). I didn’t have time to get all the gear there so I photographed characters in home studio. Sky/lake and mountains (From Swiss alps photographed during interrail 1999) were also swapped in post
I just wanted to photograph something totally different… I put tennis ball on drill, some acrylic paint and used Godox AD200 to stop the time. AD200 kept up nicely with continuous shooting in minimum power. If I’ll do this again I’ll try: Do not crop too tightly Try better black background further away. Cover drill
Second set of questions came from Noah Callen: 1. What do you believe is the benefit of conveying a message through images rather than words? Words, images and art in general are all powerful ways to express yourself. Images are just most natural way for me. I think the camera and photoshop are the tools
