Sutton’s stunning experiment featuring snowboarding and light
Fashion photographer Jacob Sutton had the interesting idea to shoot a night-time snowboarding video with pro rider William Hughes sporting an LED laiden suit. While it sounds crazy the video is eerily beautiful and breathtaking to watch. View video here.
Sutton, who has created work for the likes of Hermès, Burberry and The New York Times, spent three nights on a skidoo with his trusty Red Epic camera at temperatures of -25C to snap Hughes carving effortlessly through the deep snow, even enlisting his own father to help maintain the temperamental suit throughout the demanding shoot.
“Filming in the suit was the most surreal thing I’ve done in 20 years of snowboarding........ Luckily there was plenty of vin rouge to keep me warm, and Jacob’s enthusiasm kept everyone going through the cold nights.”William Hughes on the charged salopettes.
