In a world where digital and physical are often combined into one blurred reality, where the craftsman or the artist is something entirely different to what he or she once was, you never quite know how something was put together. For the fashion world that means the use, or often the overuse, of photoshop; it means choice between shooting photos digitally or on film, or sometimes tricking the eye into thinking something that’s digital was shot on film; it means digital effects and backdrops that were never really there. Not that those are necessarily bad things – technology too can create great art.
Seeing these behind the scenes shots from Rolf A. Jensen’s shoot Claustrophobic Fashion gives some insight into how such a creative piece was put together. In it we see illustrator Aldous Massie at work – confirming that there’s no digital trickery here. The drawings were manually and artfully created on top of the sets.
Thanks to Rolf at deceivedreality.com for sharing both the shoot and behind the scenes photos. You can view more at the gallery above.
