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.

Edit­ing away

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.
