Marion Crampe is an amazing person who happens to be a poledance/aerial/contortion artist and instructor from France. She was in Greece (again) for a few days, as she was invited by Rad Polewear as a guest at the Greek Summer Pole Camp, but also to be one of the judges at Pole Theatre Greece.
Since she had a few days to spare, we arranged to combine our arts. We have worked together in the past, for an editorial for Rad Polwear three years ago, but this time we tried something kind of different and spontaneous.
Trying to find some interesting new location, i came across an editorial shooting of my friend Foteini, in a deserted quarry. The place seemed kind of unique, with a lot of potential, and Foteini was kind enough to share the directions to it. Marion agreed that the location had potential, and we should give it a try there. My friend Alexandra joined the team, to assist.
The quarry was really deserted and remote. Lots of machinery was left dusty, unused probably for years. Since none of us had been to the place before, we kind of explored and improvised, letting the weird environment to lead us to the result. After seeing the first samples from the shooting, Marion proposed that the project’s name should be “Isolation” quoting “The deepness of being alone allows to explore far into the weirdness of the soul”
