Wall Poetry- Fashion Film

I went to Iceland in November to cover the festival Iceland Airwaves for Bast Magazine. And used the opportunity to shoot a Fashion Film as well. I found the new graffiti around town really interesting by Urban Nation. They came to the country just a couple weeks before Iceland Airwaves and painted the walls of Reykjavik in collaboration with the festival. Each member of Urban Nation got the task to collaborate with an artist playing at the festival which were supposed to choose a song, lyrics or poetry to be painted on the walls. So I decided to make a street art Fashion Film and it turned out great! One of my favourite mural was painted from the lyrics of Waterfall by Vök which fitted perfectly in the film. The people on set were perfect, the weather was perfect and Iceland Airwaves was perfect.
