Gazelle Twin - Exorcise

In Summer 2014 I shot with Director Chris Turner the music video for Gazelle Twin’s ‘Exorcise’. Shot on SVHS the degraded quality of the image compliments the malevolence of the track.

Watch it here!

The way we used to look

Whilst viewing my family’s home video’s I observed an interesting cultural behaviour that has now since vanished. My Great Aunt Nin whilst being filmed by my dad freezes when staring at the lens, a physical necessity of early photography. The day’s of early portrait photography with long exposures made it necessary for a static pose or a blurred image would result. For portraits this meant the sitter posing for seconds if not minutes resulting in a moribund complexion.

I can’t help thinking how this had an effect on then social situations and how we perceive our ancestors today, motionless and ghostly. And how will our descendants through the photographic image compare will people from our time to my great Aunt’s .
