This photo series is expressing the feeling of having insomnia and being restless, of not being able to fall asleep, waking up in the morning and feeling unrested and restless. It’s one of the most frustrating feelings of actually being tired, wanting to sleep, but simply not being able to by your body or mind, out of your control and will. It will just make you go crazy at some point.

Resist is the name of the RMIT Printmaking graduate exhibition of 2010, exhibiting the graduates in bachelor and honours. I designed both the catalogue and the invite to the exhibition, with the additional help from Tara De Pasquale who helped out a lot with communicating with printers, finding the right paper stock and keeping everything within the budget applied by our editor team with the printmakers.

While I’m busy working on the post production and retouching of the photographs we took, I thought I could show some of the snap shots Atsuko took during our shoot, as a little tease on what’s to come. The shoot is picturing a killer schoolgirl and her victim, focusing on creating ONE very fine photograph with high production value and tons of retouching, rather than a whole series of lower tier shots. On our team we have Daniel Brokstad(myself, photographer), Atsuko Nishiguchi(model), Steinar Ellingsen(model), Helen Keegan(make up artist) and Kim A. Larsen(assistant).
