We decided to celebrate the hidden moments when beauty is at its most dynamic, the creative violence that is latent within the pristine now as represented by a finished fashion photograph.
We shot models in the stylistic norm of fashion magazines. Using a Phantom camera at 1000 FPS and an array of 50 cameras to create a 3-D effect, we captured cloudbursts and explosions of cosmetic products around the model, to amplify their normally latent role in the moment.
Slowing down and shifting focus, we witness the surreal and the transient, volatile nature of beauty and the beautification process.
