We all love oddly satisfying photos! But how do you feel about incredibly tense ones? Photographer Aaron Tilley has mastered the art of making our stomach quiver and heart flush as he makes a living out of shooting the most frustrating and unsatisfying anticipation photos! Photos like an ink drop about to ruin a white shirt and the ones including brick dominos about to shatter a glass will inevitably trigger a deafening internal screaming, as you powerlessly watch the objects about to get ruined forever.
The series was commissioned for Kinfolk Magazine’s Adrenaline Issue, where the artist was asked to recreate the moments before something shocking happens in a bid to explore the relationship between our mind’s coping mechanism and bodies. The evolutionary trait of “tensing up” comes naturally to our bodies to help cushion the potential blow and withstand its effects.
