The brief for this shoot was just the title of 'Only Human' so the first thing that I thought about was what is important to me and something that makes me feel very human. For me that was the ocean, that may seem a little odd but I grew up by the beach and there is something about the vastness. It has always been somewhere where I go to think, get inspired or relax.
"For whatever we lose(like a you or a me) it's always ourselves we find in the sea"
The above extract forms the poem 'maggie and milly and molly and may' by E.E Cummings was a massive inspiration for the shoot as I very much related to the words on a human level.
I wanted to keep the styling very minimal focusing on the model and the context.
