Concepts

Senseless w/ Harriet Cutler

As you can imagine, it is obvious how hard it was for Harriet being unable to use her senses. But what is also interesting is that it was also hard for me to communicate with her during the shoot as she couldn’t see what was going on, hear my instructions properly, walk/pose, or even talk back to ask for further instructions. It makes you think about those who are living with someone who has lost one of those. It is quite a humbling experience.

1984​ w/ Talie Eigeland

My love for Metal music and its subculture started a long time ago. I was only 8 when I was introduced to it. It all started with a T-Shirt leading to the “Piece of Mind” album by Iron Maiden. As soon as “Where Eagles Dare” blasted through the headphones, I was mesmerised by the sound. 36 years later, my love and passion for the genre remains deep and pure.
 

This concept is a visualisation of the moment it all started back in 1984.
 

This is also the first time I create a video to go along with the photo set. To watch the short video, click on the following LINK.

...And Chelcie For All

A tribute to Metallica's 4th album w/ Chelcie Hunt

This photography concept is a tribute to the 1988 album "...And Justice for All" by Metallica. This is probably the most underrated and divisive album by the band. It was the first album after the death of Cliff Burton. The album deals with concepts of political decay, war, and relationship anguish. The album is full of controversy, with the most notable aspect is the elimination of the bass guitar track in the final mix as a way of hazing Jason or a form of grief following the loss of the legendary Burton.

 

This is a self-indulgent album that showcases the band’s musical prowess, with a very unique sound. The oppressed guitar sound with the dark lyrics makes it a very gloomy album. The album cover has always fascinated me. Over the years, and since 1988, I've probably had 6-7 different t-shirts relating to this album. The cover depicts a tied-up and destroyed lady justice. I tried to portray the essence of the art, while presenting it in the most elegant and beautiful way.

Michael Myers in Quarantine

The entire world is under lockdown now, including the one and only Michael Myers.


Life in quarantine is a bit hard for the average person, let alone Michael. He isn’t allowed to go out to wreak havoc and slash it up. Instead, he just wonders around the house.
I followed him around on a typical day with a camera.

 


What is the most horrific thing about being locked at home?
