Our featured photographs for today are inspired from conflict and riot. These conveys what violence can do and how it looks like with the photographer’s twist of showing the violence with the use of some digital effects. Let us read on get some ideas on how to do this kind of photography. Enjoy!
This work, “wounded”, was a work following another work, called “riot”. The main inspiration was in the conflict, the riot. This serial of portraits were a way of showing the violence of conflict, riot, without showing actual violence, just the effects. I also really liked to work with brights colors, sport jackets. I also worked recently on a photoshoot and art direction on a book about hardcore music: Gabber, and right now I’m working on a project about Vandal Graffiti.
