- An unusual brief from an unexpected client
The act of taking a photograph for someone else poses its own challenges. But how do you create an image for a client who sees the world from a completely different perspective?
In the video above, we ask a group of photographers to take on a near-impossible brief: to shoot a scene that only exists in a child's imagination. What they discovered tested not only their approach to photography, but also the unconscious barriers that restrict the creativity in all of us.
When you get older in "adult world", you have limitations of your imagination and creativity, but kids don't have that boundary.
IMAGINATION is another experiment from THE LAB, a series designed to shift creative thinking behind the lens.
Special thanks to the photographers who participated. You can explore their final images below.
