To publicise knitwear label Sibling’s Comic Horror collection, This is Real Art decided to put the wind up some very scared models
This is Real Art‘s Paul Belford explains that “we came up with the idea of photographing scared-looking models wearing the clothes but we wanted to get genuine expressions of fear”. So, echoing a tactic famously employed by Ridley Scott on the shoot of Alien, This is Real Art decided to really scare the models.
“The models were led into the pitch black studio, unable to see a thing and made to stand on a spot for several minutes, at which point they were scared using an incredibly loud horror noise,” Belford explains. “Simultaneously, the photographs were taken.” As you can see from this video
