These are pictures from the feature Film "Sundust" - an apocalyptical lovestory.After a plane carrying biological weapons crashed close to a little village on the coastline, most of its inhabitants died.
I was inspired by the big blackout in Canada and the US in 2004. I witnessed the incident by chance, visiting Toronto at that time. The entire city was pitchblack. Except for a few single headlights, I feeled surrounded by a ghost city.Based on that experience, for Sundust we created a "dying city", withering like a plant. The upper floors of the skyscrapers has already faded, only the lower parts are still filled with live.
The colour range and lighting of the shots are more real than they might appear at first sight. The reference material came from a fotoshooting in Shanghai.
