Leo Batt ‘Flour boy’
South African photographer, Leo Batt presents his debut feature.
There wasn’t much planning. I called Raphael & said “Hey boi wanna do some naked shots on the train tracks covered in flour?” & he was like “ye.” So we did. I think that describes the character itself, his content with anything. A love for just the flour & books he carries around, no other cares in the world.
I have a large attraction to minimalist compositions, focusing on contrasts & small bursts of vibrance within colour. I decided to make the background simple, with no attractions to the eyes, bringing the characters personality out further, & focusing more on the details of the body.
