Brazilian
Girlpower

May 2016

I had the pleasure of shooting with worldchampion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Shanti Abelha. I called her up for this little idea of mine. I generally want to make darker, cinematic images. Images with some sort of narrative. i sketched up some drawings to make a moodboard; Her, in a dark parking lot, being attacked by a guy and then showing of her skills of selfdefense. The guy, Mads, is actually her partner who is a strongman athlete, so he kinda fitted the bill perfect! The actual series is the first seven images.
