featured by Brodybookings : BRODYBOOKINGS presents male model Jack as ‘BRUTUS’ in the personal spread by Marc and David

“‘Brutus’ is an experimental body of work that turns the usual procedure of photography on its head, taking it to extremes. Our daily work is all about timing, and sometimes it’s a real challenge to bring all elements of an image together in the same place at the same time. It all starts with finding the perfect location where everything is just right. The background, the color, the floor, and the orientation of the location so you have the desired light at least once a day. This usually already determines the setting. Now you require talent, a stylist for the talent, and in our case as transportation photographers, we needed a car. All together in the same spot at the same perfect time.

For ‘Brutus’, we turned this upside down. We stripped the images we wanted to shoot down to their individual elements: background, floor, talent, styling and car. We photographed all elements right where they were positioned at the time they were available. So we photographed eleven backgrounds in eleven different locations in three different countries – Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal – at the perfect time for each location.

Then, we photographed a car in Munich and the talent in Rotterdam with outfits that were put together remotely by a stylist from Berlin. We captured different ground surfaces we thought were interesting wherever we found them. We made sure to photograph all elements for one final image from the same perspective so they would perfectly fit together.

In the end, we had four different photos for each motif. To illustrate our approach properly and take it to extremes again, we decided to print all four photos and arrange them physically. To do so, we cut out the elements very roughly so you could still see their original backgrounds and montaged them on top of one another at a distance to symbolize their spacial separation. The result: eleven exceptional images that challenge our usual visual perception.” – Marc and David.
