Andrei takes us step by step through the process of making the “Wild”
When I started this image there wasn’t a certain direction for what I was going for, all I can remember is that it was a hot summer day at the office and I wanted to go away from everything so I closed my eyes and I pictured a dry, remote place where one could live in solitude surrounded by nature.
Then I got this picture in my head with a big colorful sky over a dry land and I was thinking about African wildlife like giraffes and antelopes (oryx) that are wandering in this landscape. I was trying to go deeper with this image so I added an architectural element to it which is a low profile supermarket store that seems empty but on top of it someone improvised a place to live, to be alone in this exotic place. I thought it could intrigue people to think about it and maybe develop their own stories, why is there a supermarket here, where could this place be, who could live there and why.
