Monika Płusa ‘Grey daze’
Poland photographer Monika Plusa made the most of a gloomy day in Cologne as she followed Felix through unfamiliar streets.
“When I came to Cologne to visit my friend, I couldn’t resist doing a photoshoot. It turned out that I got the opportunity to work with a young, promising model from Düsseldorf, who wanted to come to Cologne for a shoot. The sun was shining beautifully that morning, I was so happy that there would be a great vibe for the shoot. Unfortunately, an hour later when I met up with Felix it was gloomy. And when we were ready to take pictures it started to rain. But that didn’t stop me from taking pictures, it actually encouraged me! The urban style, the dynamics of the poses and the interesting buildings made for great photos. Could a rainy day have been more fruitful? I don’t think so.”
