fashion shoot replaces camera with a scanner

a recent fashion series by photographer henry hargreaves is shot entirely on a scanner fashion credits: bra by stella mccartney; necklace and earrings by pamela love




for his recent fashion series, brooklyn-based photographer henry hargreaves replaced his camera with a scanner, capturing ghostly images from the device’s bed. the shoot required about 150 scans before reaching its finished stage. for each, model talita of RED needed to bend over  onto the scanner– the units stalled when held upright– and remain still for 20-30 seconds. hargreaves notes that the biggest  difficulty was the inability to see the image that was being scanned; as a result, the working process mixed elements of chance with careful posing in order to have the elements fall as desired. the series showcases jewelry by pamela love, lizzie fortunato, we are here, asos, dannijo, stella mccartney, and me&ro.
