Versus #4 Youssef Nassar

Hello fellow Blogreaders!

After more than a year I’m back with another session from the Versus project. This time my photo companion was Lebanese photograph and director Youssef Nassar, with whom I worked on the music video for Steven Wilson. Our session was very spontaneous, we made it in a tiny hostel room after all working day. The background was a window curtain, and the lighting – tiny softbox 60×60 with studio lamp triggered by radio. Fun fact: the cigarette wasn’t lit on any of the photos, and all the smoke and other effects were added in postproduction.

It’s going to be a series of short stories, and they’re all going to be about women. Below you can see the first one of them, the model was my most important, personal Muse. I visited this attic for the first time a year before taking these pictures. It had something magical and mysterious in it, it looked like a perfect hiding place. I knew I had to make use of this place, and it’s potential. One Summer evening my Muse and I went there armed with a honey yellow fabric and a bouquet of dried flowers, and with a very loose idea of what kind of photos we wanted. This is where it led us…
