for the story titled ‘in anxious anticipation‘ for kinfolk magazine’s adrenaline issue, photographer aaron tilley and art director kyle bean were asked to create a supporting series of visuals that would aptly express a feeling of expectant and disquieting dread. these obscure states of mind have been imagined through a sequence of hair-raising and stressful scenarios that each capture a momentary yet maddening emotion of anticipation in a single frame. 

 

the photos creatively capture an everyday stressful situation in a unique and mischievous way — an ink pen precariously dangles above a pristine white shirt; falling concrete bricks domino downward towards a delicate champagne glass; and a rock-pendulum begins to swing across an arc of unlit matches.

  • That last one isn’t very good. The loss of buoyancy due to helium loss would actually be so slow and gentle that the balloon would likely just rest on top of the nails, the pressure being dispersed enough by the surface area over the many tips, rather than actually pop. A falling water balloon would have been a better photo.
