What a great concept photographers Wilcox – Johansson together with super creative retoucher Kate Booker had for this fashion editorial published on I Love You magazine. Wilcox-Johansson shot the Twin Peaks inspired series mimicking the poses and style of soap operas and American dramas (which David Lynch was also making references to). The “Twin Peaks” theme was reinforced in post-production by Kate, who was amazing in creating different colour moods and effects, which very subtly enhanced the concept.
Wilcox-Johansson shot 3 different styles of pictures: one in black and white and the other two in colour against light and dark backdrops. They wanted Kate to develop these styles further. Kate sourced different images to inspire herself during ‘the making of’ the images. She worked very hard throughout the weekend and presented the photographer with 3 main moods for their 3 different styles. Smokey, degraded effect for the black and white; a vintage look with pastel colours and out of focus edges for the light backdrop and an amazing TV screen effect with pronounced hues for the blues and red for the images shot against the dark backdrop.
Below I have posted some work in progress to show some of the styles they went through. Really well done!
