SL OWLY FADING AWAY
Fade to black
Ali adopted a monochrome approach here, stripping away the connotations many colour images have. “You can show emotions better in black and white, because colour can distract us from the meaning you really want to show.” The model’s dark clothing also keeps things nondescript.
The success of Ali’s image has come from some clever editing tricks. “I used Photoshop to post-process the image and make it as I pictured it in my mind.” By blurring the subject into the background, he’s reinforced feelings of isolation and the idea of her fading away.
