The Art of “The Art of Social Conditioning

For my short story, The Art of Social Conditioning, I wanted to evoke the quiet menace of London; empty tunnels, anonymous crowds, darkness. I used black and white to provide an unsettling tone, and shot much of the photography for the piece myself, except where I was referencing historical events, such as the London riots, or the Olympics. In the case of Chapter 2 (TWO), I actually took a shot which ended up looking terrible and found one on Flickr that did the job much better. I don’t pretend to be a great photographer, but with a little luck and some judicious photoshop, I think it turned out great. You can read the story here.
