「Attractiveness(あふれる魅力)」
この作品は、コロナウイルスの影響による自粛期間中に、クルーで「期間が明けたら撮影をしたいね。」と約束をし、思いを巡らせ、そのタイミングが訪れた瞬間に打ち合わせをあえてせずに制作したもの。
モデルのスミレの存在と彼女の内面からあふれ出るオーラから、自然とこの作品イメージが湧き上がりました。

撮影中は彼女にしかない独特の浮遊感を表現するために、白い空間で自由に動いてもらうことを常に意識し、彼女が自身の世界に入った瞬間を捉えようと心掛けました。


During quarantine due to corona virus, our team promised each other to do photoshoot when the situation gets better.
Let our imagination run and did this photoshoot without any meetings on purpose as soon as quarantine is over.
We got the idea for this work from the presence of the model, Sumire, and the atmosphere that brimming from her inner self.

We made sure Sumire is moving freely in the white simple space to express her unique strange attraction, and tried to capture the moment of entering her own world.
