Loud

It is 2057 and the world’s population has reached 10 billion. To prevent unsanctioned births, British law states that no male and female can be allowed to be alone together in a private place.

‘Loud’ is a play by Colby Quinn adapted by Anastasia Bruce-Jones and starring Toby W and Beth H. I met up with the cast in the Judith E Wilson drama studio under the English faculty for a photoshoot. Gaia Lambert had procured us some UV paint and a big UV-lamp. It is always a lot of fun to play with good props. Body paint can be quite messy, but you often get great results.

We started with just a bit of paint on the hands, but that quickly spread as they acted out a couple of intimate scenes from the play.

These images are almost like a Rorschach test.

Toby had to leave to go to a garden party, but Beth could stay a bit longer so we did a few more photos, and after a while Anastasia also started painting herself and joined in front of the camera.
