The latest personal project from Beate. ‘Stream of time’ is an examination on the passage of time, the stop-motion clips consist each of between 42 – 94 stills.

The music that accompanies the back and forth motion was specially composed to flow and unite sound and vision.

Elise’s new personal project ‘Heavenly Creature’ centres around the natural. Sunlight bounces into frame from below the model, softening the harder shadows that can form in daylight settings.

This series also signifies a move away from studio beauty and into a slightly more loose, naturalistic beauty.

Nigel shot this series of bikers in the Autumn whilst traveling with friends in the UK. The use of natural light displays Nigel’s genuine ability to capture feeling whilst being light on the foot.

 

Nigel, travelling with his long term collaborator and 1st assistant Dave, as well as Erwin de Boer from Real Deal TV made the long trip to Tokyo to produce a series of personal still and motion work. The work is based on the wearing of individual and subculture clothing.

This one “Tokyo’s Harajuku girls” was named because of the 90’s gathering place where it all began. It focuses on the girls in real environments, going about their daily lives in wonderful, unique and cartoonish fashions.

Elise’s latest personal project plays with ever-evolving make-up trends and the team decided to really push the boat out!

Beate follows on from the success of ‘Somewhere in Between’ by expanding on the award-nominated series.

A moment in time, however fleeting is encapsulated using mirrors and translucent coloured perspex. Lighting is positioned in such a way to create, momentary shadow structures.

The series is as much reflective on the human experience as it is a visual delight.

 

‘Beneath the Veil’ is Elise’s most recent personal project with a focus on body curves, textures, and tone.

The use of a veil symbolises barriers and change. Close crops of the model dominate this series and build on the intimacy that surrounds marriage.

Elise continues her exploration of the human form with this latest series of skin close-ups.

This time the models entangled limbs were wearing pale coloured tights to create repetition & symmetry through the shape.

Marco takes his love for the hyper-real to Bombay Beach Biennale!

The collage created out of life-size cutouts is symbolic of the rich history of Bombay Beach and the Salton Sea, which in its heyday was a glamorous Hollywood destination.

Today, due to an environmental catastrophe that polluted the lake, almost overnight the town went from boom to bust making it feel almost like a post-apocalypic disaster zone

Elise draws performances out of her models for this series titled ‘Chanel I Love You’.
