A junkyard setting always generates a little of a post-apocalyptic mood. The skeletons of cars, immobile, their wheels lying cold and detached in a desert wasteland… Niklas Hoejlund uses that type of setting in his shoot Crash, but the meaning of the relationship between the two protagonists – the silent, hulking male and the beautiful woman – isn’t entirely clear. Is the crash a literal or a metaphorical one? Is this a romance… or a rescue?
Hoejlund’s black and white photography is – as always – powerful.
Featured in REVS magazine, the shoot was styled by Noah Kanber. You can view the full shoot by Niklas Hoejlund (niklashoejlund.com) by clicking on the thumbnails.
