Ben Trovato is back, and so is Los Angeles based fashion photographer Aaron Feaver. Having already shot four stories for Ben Trovato, Feaver should be no stranger to the regular BT reader. His latest contribution, Silence, features Alex Wurfel styled by Tiff Horn, shot with a Pentax 67, Canon A2e and Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim, all with Kodak Tri-X film.
“I see it as a lonely story,” Feaver says, before elaborating: “Maybe she’s a shipwreck survivor stranded on a rocky island, stitching together fabulous outfits from the flotsam that washes ashore.”
He mentions the ocean, the weather, the rocky beach, and his black and white film to be the main sources of inspiration, but also the protagonist of the story: “Alex was great. It was a cold February day at the beach but she never complained. Fortunately we had plenty of beer to keep us warm.”
Because the story was shot on black and white film, stylist Tiff Horn says she “focused on texture using both knits and light fabrics allowing emphasis on the lines of the body.“
