A couple of images I did for dear friend Little Liffner earlier this autumn.
There is so much to say about process. I have been thinking a lot lately. How things end up the way they do. And why. I think I have learned to control most parts of it, which is a necessity when working commercially. I guess a lot of it is about narrowing down, Start big, reduce.
A while ago I read a book about creativity. I generally tend to dislike books that oversimplify things. Take any self-help book you want as an example. However, it had a nice trail of thought:
When you have something you really should, or have to do. What do you do instead? If you allow yourself to let go for a minute. What happens.
Looking back a couple of years I sort of realized that a lot of projects that have grown or taken me places come from just that. Like a quick collage. Or doing a layout that just felt absurd at first. Im thinking about doing an exhibition or something with those things. A lot of it has already circled back of course. As a sketch for a new campaign or editorial or so.
Anyway. Here is one from today:
It actually started here, when revisiting an old shoot to get some material to sketch with:
Did a shoot for the new beauty magazine Narcisse with darling make up artist Ludovic Engrange in Paris last year. It was one of those shoots where everything just came together really naturally. Ended up doing a ton of pictures. Here is a couple of them.
