PEACE the Making of

The Fashtons (Fi and I) took on an album artwork project for the band Peace. Working with art director Matt de Jong and Q Prime management for Columbia records. My task was to create a mirror that the band could be photographed in front of. I had to figure out a way to make sure the photographer (Fi) was not in the shot, so I made a mirrored peace sign that had many angles. 

I then had to do a spot of wallpapering and painted many things yellow. 

It was shot on location at Dalston Pier. There were many light tests once we got into the studio to get the right composition. We were helped by Magdalena Siwicka who is a lighting expert.

It was finally time to shoot Peace.
