Something in The Water

Something in The Water

[By Ewan Mackie (He/Him)]

‘It was all shot on B&W 35mm film and developed at A+M imaging in Edinburgh.

As for the concept going into it all I knew I wanted to get some abstract, hazy portraits. So I experimented with double exposures, steam and water to create the sort of dreamy / shoegazy aesthetic. There was also a sense of indulgence feeding into it I suppose as it’s all quite sensual (apple in mouth, lots of caressing hands etc) but at the same time he seems in a lot of turmoil. So I guess upon reflection it’s a man drowning in his own self indulgence. Can’t really think of a name for it though sorry. I kind of like the way ‘something in the water’ suits it.’
