We just finished shooting a new project we call Water Wigs Women. The concept is again simple and it is another visual exploration of something new and totally different. This time we cast some unique looking women, shaved their heads, (or applied bald caps) and hurled water balloons at their heads, and captured the explosion of water at various intervals. The result a new head of water hair! Our goal was to create a beautifully crafted set of images applying the techniques we learned with our original project and apply it to a futuristic fashion feature. We felt the latex outfits fit with the concept and allowed us to wipe dry after each balloon.
We would love to play around with this concept further, a full behind the scenes with phantom camera footage is coming soon. We were stoked to have the folks from Red Bull come to document the event! We hope you enjoy it as much as the previous execution. Models provided courtesy of Zuri Model and Talent, Los Angeles.
