The Johnny Raw Studio recently conceptualized  3 Shades of Black. Three multimedia shorts as contribution to an evening of Gothic inspiration in Amsterdam’s FOAM in remembrance of Lord Byron’s ghost story competition, which took place some 200 years ago.

3 Shades of Black is a rather minimalist atmospheric black and white triptych concerning suggestion. The Soil, The Road and The village.

While working on an impression of all things present just sometimes all things past emerge. They carry with them both a concept of timelessness as well as the option of not being capable of dealing with endlessness.


-The Soil-

Touching the Soil

Like the Surface of Flesh

As close as Flesh can be near
