Surreal Beijing

7

The idea for this shoot was to bring nature into the studio. So I [Tom Selmon] collaborated with my creative partner Neil Lee who came up and painted the surreal back drops. We did three settings: “Under the sea”, “Grasslands” and a “Hill”.
Both models are street cast. The Chinese model is the gym teacher at the school I work at. Every time I saw her in the cafeteria I thought she was really special and thought this was the perfect opportunity to shoot her as I was looking for a strong, beautiful model. The second model I met in a night club and thought was really beautiful.
