Suspenseful Still Lifes By Aaron Tilley And Kyle Bean

Still life photographer Aaron Tilley teamed up with set designer Kyle Bean to shoot a series of unsettling images using everyday objects for the latest ‘Adrenaline’ issue of Kinfolk magazine.

Titled ‘In Anxious Anticipation‘, the playful series of still lifes evokes a feeling of suspense, capturing everyday moments just before something is about to happen. The images accompany a story on the interconnection between mind and body during an adrenaline rush and writer Jordan Kushins describes the feeling as follows: “A telltale thump of the heart, the flush feeling that starts in your chest and spreads to your fingertips, the tightening of muscles and the quickening of breath: the effects of adrenaline are positively pulse-pounding, but the physical whoosh we feel in our bodies actually starts in our brains.”
