Steam Portraits by David Ryle

Words

London based photographer David Ryle created a series named ‘Steam Portraits’. It came about as an experimental excuse to work in the studio, which he found he hasn’t done for a while. ‘I had missed the controlled environment that it gives. The art director Gemma Fletcher and I came up with a few concepts and the stylist and producer Natasha Freeman found some great models, so we spent a day shooting with different types of glass and water effects, and it was really quite a freeform shoot that allowed us to arrive at some quite interesting shots.’ We love the outcome of this collaboration with the color tone and simple background.
