As with Elska Magazine, where every shoot owes inspiration partly to a song (note the Elska Mixtape list of inspirations on the back page of every issue), music videos are also a big source of drive when photographing a subject.
My friend Lucas Voclère, who used to be an actor and model way back wanted to try a quick little shoot when he was at my place. I really don’t like to just shoot without some inspiration, and then I saw that Robyn’s ‘Body Talk’ was on the turntable at the moment. Without even putting the needle to the record, I started picturing the video clip of track two: “Dancing On My Own”. And that’s really all I needed for us to get started.
Start the video at 0:08 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J294A-R1Cjk) and you will see why I told Lucas to make these fists. Simple as that.
