A nerve-racking photo series by Aaron Tilley and Kyle Bean

How do you illustrate the feeling of anticipation? Perhaps sweaty palms or a perspiring brow? That’s not exactly the most… appealing, of imagery. Aaron Tilley and Kyle Bean though have come up with a refined, almost elegant way of portraying this haunting emotion for a recent issue of Kinfolk. They’ve put together a series of common objects and placed them in high-stress vignettes. You know what’s going to happen in each, the inevitability strikes you instantly.

You can see more images from the shoot and read the article by visiting Kinfolk here.

    this made me laugh a little bit. The artist isn’t using strike anywhere matches for the swinging stone and matches piece. He is using safety matches. Not a big issue but something artist should consider. So there is no anticipation in that piece.

    Beautiful images. That egg suspended in mid air over the marble slab is fantastic.
