“Quiet is peace. Tranquility. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life. Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it. – Amir” ― Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner.
Scroll down for a Q & A with Nadja Pollack.
JS: Where did you get the inspiration for the editorial from?
NP: I wanted to show a hideaway in nature. A calm and peaceful setting. We all dream of days off work and holidays; getting away from the daily routine of life. A life free of all kinds of media, noise, images etc.
JS: What lead you to the choice of clothing and models for Tranquility?
NP: Santusha and I chose mainly sombre colours to fit with the tone of the entire editorial. There are some Dutch brands like GoSoaky who make great rainwear and were perfect for this kind of mood. We included some other Dutch brands like Boof and Le Big because I feel a lot of Dutch brands are great but don’t have the international exposure and I personally like their style for my own kids.
I chose the models Cato and Clara for this editorial. Cato is one of my favourite discoveries. Both girls worked well together which helped to set the tone and mood of the editorial.
JS: It must be challenging shooting in the outdoors as you can not be sure of what the weather will be like on a given day. How did you manage?
NP: It was freezing cold on that day and I am happy together we made a beautiful series despite the cold temperatures.
