Neon Demon

Do androids dream of electric sheep?


Blade Runner was a huge creative inspiration for me. Of course the movie is a bit before my time. Its impact, however is everlasting. It inspired so many other projects, such as Ghost in the Shell, the Matrix, and many more. The visual language was not lost on me and my work. Little nods can be found throughout my work and this shoot was an attempt to capture the neon noir (cyberpunk) essence in a minimalistic studio photoshoot.


Nelson Algren —

"...a city that was to live by night after the wilderness had passed. A city that was to forge out of steel and blood-red neon its own peculiar wilderness."


Blade Runner —

"It's too bad she won't live, but then again who does?"
