NOWNESS: Jacob Sutton’s L.E.D. Surfer
Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton set out to create the powerful imagery of a lone light source surfing through the darkness. In his vision, the surfing would instead be on the powdery slopes of Tignes, in the French Alps. Costume design whiz John Spatcher built the specially crafted, Tron-esque L.E.D. suit that Artec pro rider William Hughes wore for the project. Sutton followed on a snowmobile, filming the mesmerizing short on a Red Epic camera, over the course of three nights in subzero temperatures.
