You’d be forgiven for thinking that these were photographs taken in the depths of a very scary war-zone, I know I did. You can so easily become concerned with looking at the bloodied soldiers on sterile beds in what looks like a disused factory, that you don’t even see the enormous lights and film equipment scattered in the balcony above them. So, although you may believe yourself to be in some sort of Call of Duty parallel universe, Kalpesh Lathigra’s photographs in his Coriolanus series merely depict the set of one of the goriest films of 2012.
Don’t get too comfortable though, his other projects including Recruits and Anglo-Afghan War depict true war-zones, and are incredible. Make sure to give his website a good going through, he’s done a lot of amazing projects, each as intelligent and as mesmerising as the next.
