Shoot was inspired from the song "Doomed" by Moses Sumney and a series of photos of the artist, Frank Ocean, by photographer Nabil Elderkin.
Doomed spacaious, minimalistic instrumental and longing vocals give the sensation of being cast aside or loneliness. Lyrics focus on being idle and alone in life, which at the time I took these, was something I felt and related to extremely. As far as direction, I felt the photos captured by Nabil of Frank conveyed that isolation very deeply in it's truest essence of melodrama and coyness. Taking both of these different mediums of art as inspiration, I asked my friend Derrick to model for me and help me create this. For 2018, I hope to do more passion projects such as this.
Thank you to artists that inspire me everyday and thank you to PUMP for publishing these photos.
