"In November 2018, we held the first planning sessions with the series’ stylist Laura Puntila. We laid out the styling guidelines and generally discussed the project we were about to embark upon. The styling employed, for instance, coffee grounds and body-paint to create shine and grainy skin texture. Many parts of the setup we were able to borrow or had gifted to us, e.g. self-caught fish, tridents and a sack of old fishing nets from my session assistant’s grandparents. Though not all of the seafood we used was edible I still had pangs of conscience at times when perfectly good fish got spoiled in the making. Yet I held the images’ message in such regard that I was able to ignore such pains."
