'Photosynthesis' by Philip Riches featuring Arran Sly is a visual depiction of fear-inducing changes and morphing while aging.
Shot by Philip Riches, the Photosynthesis fashion video is a capture of fear, change and resilience. Riches masterfully uses mixed media and harsh lighting techniques to evoke a sense of mystery, anguish and longing. Already featured in major men's life magazines, Arran Sly has a perfectly fierce look from every angle. The star of Photosynthesis, Sly is depicted as a caged individual, longing to break out on his own. Entrapped by a golden neck brace, the model tugs at the restrictive piece. Throughout the video Sly is depicted as shifting and bending between styles and moods.
Photosynthesis by Philip Riches featuring Arran Sly is a stunningly complex work.
