untitled hot shots
ooh, i forgot that the latest round of Hey, Hot Shot! competition and its related bloggery was going on right now.
i really like this photo by contender Jamie Campbell, who i remember seeing on Conscientious before. nice. the composition, pose, and colors just work for me.
it's from his newest, untitled series. the other shots in the series so far leave me a bit colder though. i think something about the lighting is turning me off. the draped, posed, and hidden bodies in domestic spaces remind me of something partway between the fictioned fantasy of Gregory Crewdson and the reality of something more like Taryn Simon's the Innocents. only with more humor and without the intensity of the point of view.
