What to make of this editorial, shot by Torbjørn Rødland for the FW 13 edition of Double magazine? What is going on? What makes the pictures so disturbing? Sure, there are the creepy bodybuilders, the children, the childlike women, the strange setting, the voyeuristic men and their cameras and the strange imbalance of power between the characters. Well, you tell me, I just know that the pictures stopped me in my tracks, if only because they show something unusual and noncompliant.
(Note: The three “lying” pictures are supposed to be like that and weren’t accidentally posted in the wrong format.)
