Dean Bradshaw is a photographer and director interested in the elements that sit below the surface. Conceptually engaging, each composition focuses on the finer details that define the exterior. The featured images – taken from Hyper Color – are led by uninhibited narratives that immerse viewers in peculiar, extraordinary microcosms. Lush backdrops are prevalent; rich, indulgent colours provide arresting settings for performative characters. Whilst the settings are static – windowless, exit-less and all-consuming – uninhibited models revel in the simplicity of their props and the frames within which they fully express themselves. Chequered floors, still clocks and un-hooked phones provide pop-coloured relief that is at once alienating and whimsical. With no reference to time or context, Bradshaw creates multi-layered realities which truly reflect the desire to balance intrigue with attraction. The ordinary is transformed into an illusory playground. www.deanbradshaw.com.
