This series of photographs was created for my photography course at university together with Michelle Althöfer. The given topic was the word „Illusion“. After a few days of brainstorming, I developed the concept of a man who has lost his love, but continues to relive the precious moments with her and gaining energy from it. Our docent advised us to write a story along with the pictures, so we combined the presentation of the final photographs with the reading of the little story above.
We wanted to create the „ghostly“ feeling of the female by making our model move in crazy ways using a long exposure. After having taken the pictures, we continued with post-processing in Adobe Photoshop CS6. Due to photographing in different setting (e.g. cars // inside // outside) this was necessary to give the photos a unified look and feel.
