96 HOURS WITH EJECT PILOT EJECT

2013

My brief for this project was to photographically document the experiences of a band as they recorded three of their songs, a process that would take four very long days. These spreads are a small selection from a book that I designed and produced as a result, which through images forms a narrative of events during the 96 hour long shoot.

This project posed quite a unique challenge, both technical and creative. Firstly shooting in a dimly lit recording studio while trying to maintain low ISO numbers was a trying experience, but from that technicality emerged interesting aesthetic, which added movement and excitement to some of the images, an element that I found can be used to tell a further story.

Another challenging aspect for me was the style of photography itself, having to frame shots to tell a story in the first place is not second nature to someone used to photographic wildlife and landscapes. However I found it enlightening to say the least, the power of composition to convey the experience of the subject was a hard fought aspect that I learned during this project.
