CAPTURE ONE PRO
For the release of their latest software, Capture One Pro asked me to shoot a campaign around the color Red, specifically tying it to my physical and creative limitations posed by the pandemic.
Shot for Capture One Pro 21
Inspired by Stanislaw Lem’s novel Solaris, this photo series is about a woman trapped on a space ship orbiting a mysterious planet. This planet has a strange effect on those who come near it, causing them to see perfect simulacra of themselves and loved ones from their past. It is unclear if these figures are real or in her mind, but her solitude of countless years of being in outer space is deeply felt. Stripped of belonging, there is only longing.
The color red represents the rawness of that yearning. Sometimes it’s an ember stinging from one point within, and other times I’m enveloped by its warm fleshy walls. Red is heat that stands strong even when the air is cold. It is the feeling in your heart that someone you love is nearby, even though in real life they are far away. Red is sometimes unbearable. If Blue is protection, Red is strength.
