Jonathan and his long-time collaborator, the fabulous food stylist Peta O’Brien worked together on this powerful graphic personal project. Both aware of the negative impact of plastic in our seas they developed this series loosely based on a distant memory of ships in (damaged plastic) bottles. There was only a small amount of retouching needed and everything on set was recycled and composted.
Tom Bunning recently took the Volvo XC60 through it's paces one cold and misty afternoon by the sea and understandably, promptly fell for the car.
Jonathan wanted to see if he could create natural phenomenon in an enclosed and controlled environment. This process turned his workspace into more of a mad scientists lab than a studio, with bottles, hose pipes and jugs of water. Each water shot required a different technique to achieve the desired result, and each phenomenon needed far more water and physical space for the water to move in to naturally create the shapes, than the actual containers would allow.
Tom travelled to Iceland photographing the extraordinary landscape and the equally extraordinary Land Rover Discovery, Tom created a set of images that let the both the landscape and the 4x4 compliment each others rugged, yet beautiful forms.
