Introducing the photography project by Al Sarcoli (MA Fashion Photography at the University for the Creative Arts). Based in the UK. Part 5: ROOMS!
ROOMS is a project about the concept of private life and how any hotel can be the metaphorical representation of the private rooms of a society.
The meaning of the private life can be found inside any hotel: a couple of elderly people, a father with his children, a young couple who has decided to spend the honeymoon in a hotel, someone who travel constantly from one point to another…
A hotel is a brief meeting point where human beings find peace of mind… An ephemeral peace of mind amidst the bustle of society.
Inspired by the sci-fi cinema of John Carpenter and David Cronenberg, I decided to add an abject element to break the harmony of the classical portrait. The abject, the shaving foam in this case, is something that we do not recognize as a thing because is not part of that quotidian universe.
