Anticipation

Photographer Aaron Tilley and Director Kyle Bean aimed to create the moment when something terrible is just about to happen.

“The project emphasizes the curious relationship between what the mind perceives and how the body reacts. The anticipation causes the body to release adrenaline, even if nothing actually happens, and it is believed that this reaction is closely connected to the fight-or-flight response that was so essential for the survival of our early ancestors.” ( James Gould-Bourn)

Below are the pictures that are designed to invoke a sense of anxiety and discomfort as we anticipate the moment when something is just about to occur, but doesn’t int the end.
