My studio is located in loft block in Vilnius and they have an annual tradition to have an Open Day for everyone who wants to visit. That was new to me, so I wanted to makes something that would be entertaining, make people laugh and that everyone could participate in the process.
The idea to blow wind in to the face and make a portrait somehow came to my head instantly. I wanted to create images that would be clean, simple and in meet high aesthetic quality standards. So I’ve built my own lights that helped me achieving visual concept that I had in my mind.
It took me only few seconds to take one picture. The person in front of my camera had to breath in and hold it until my assistant was blowing 300km/h wind in to his face.
