Energy…Passion…Spirit, with a twist!
Feel free to swerve into Verve - 29 stunning new royalty free image titles from Digital Vision. Commissioned to inject a creative twist to any campaign, this collection is wild and funky, passionate and funny, clever and energetic, cool and very, very hot. From business suits to bathing suits, stolen kisses to stationery cupboards, Verve challenges the ordinary with these vibrant images.
Each exciting Verve CD title comprises 50-100 images, every one taking its inspiration from the naturally stimulating and unusual world around us. Shot on location in countries including Mexico, South Africa, USA, Italy, UK and Argentina, Verve captures the essence of deserts and waterfalls, beaches and glaciers, rainforests and city streets. It offers a fresh perspective on people and places, animals and objects. It confronts the elements and provokes the emotions.
Known throughout the industry for its innovative ventures, Digital Vision dared 28 photographers to flirt with everyday themes such as business, family, animals and travel. The brief was to take these themes and turn them inside out and stretch our perceptions to the limit. That is precisely what each artist did.
Art Director of Verve, Maria Teijeiro, said "This time we have gone a long, long way to find all the different elements that make this collection outstanding. We've gone to the streets of London to cast true 'funky' models, we used people's pets, including some rather unusual ones, we used some of the best ballet dancers in the UK and we've gone to the 'future' for the most surreal images yet.'
Across its 29 titles, Verve offers everything from humour and satire to technical perfection and true artistry. One of the most striking titles within the business portfolio is Max Oppenheim's Office Detail, which somehow succeeds in giving the obligatory stationery cupboard an artistic form. In complete contrast, the dancers of the English National Ballet create awe inspiring images, portraying precision, feeling and strength in Movement. However, for those who simply thrive on others' misfortunes, there is a laugh a minute in My Pet & I which never quite establishes exactly who looks like whom!
Available from 5 June 2003, with single images starting at £69 (+VAT) &endash; and no royalties to pay.
