HARRY EVANS BTS

I had met Harry once whilst working with Tim Walker for an I-D series, however it was a privilege to be asked to shoot his latest collection with him alongside the Force or Nature that is Stylist Pierre Alexandre-Fillaire. Here are a few BTS shots

DESIGNS FOR 'THE MAN WHO STOLE THE SUN'

THE STARTING POINT FOR THIS MENSWEAR TAILORED SHOOT FOR HUNGER MAGAZINE ISSUE 13 WAS A WILLIAM BLAKE SKETCH OF WHAT I THOUGHT LOOKED LIKE A MAN STEALING THE SUN. THIS IDEA THAT THE BEAUTY OF WHAT YOU DESIRE MIGHT CONSUME YOU. PIERRE THE STYLIST I WORKED WITH ON THIS SHOOT THEN INVESTIGATED THAT THIS WAS ACTUALLY DEPICTIONS OF URIZEN.

THIS WAS MY INTERPRETATION OF A CHARACTER GOING FROM ISOLATION IN A DARK AND LONELY STATE OF MIND, TO THE OBSESSION OF LIGHT AND THIS DESIRE TO OBTAIN IT. ONCE STOLEN HE IS EMPOWERED BUT THE SUNS STRENGTH IS UNCONTROLLABLE AND HE IS CONSUMED BY THE BEAUTY WITHIN IT. 

AWAKEN NATURE DESIGNS

THE QUARRY TROLL ACTUALLY HAD A LAMP BUILT INTO IT'S HEAD SO IT WOULD EMIT LIGHT FROM ITS EYES AND MOUTH. IT WOULD BECOME THE SPOTLIGHT ONTO THE FIGURE. UNFORTUNATELY THIS DESIGN NEVER GOT SHOT BUT WILL HAVE TO RE-VISIT ONE DAY. AN ALTERNATIVE LOCATION SHOT WAS STAGED INSTEAD.

THE SECOND IS OF A LANDSCAPE IN DORSET WHICH INSPIRED THIS DESIGN, THE SHAPE OF THE HILL AGAINST ITS SURROUNDINGS WITH THE SMALL CLUSTER OF TREES ON TOP SUGGESTED THERE COULD BE SOMETHING HIDDEN BENEATH. THIS BECAME ONE OF THE FINAL SHOTS IN THE SERIES.
