Mariví Calvo created the campaign based on three ideas: images were to be set at night, providing an opportunity to showcase the lamps when lit; the focus was to shift from spaces themselves to the human beings that inhabit them; and the catalogue was to move away from traditional formats and to be a work of artistic creation.
"The initial references were to the works of Edward Hopper and the film Rear Window by Hitchcock. We wanted to recreate the colours of film and photography from that period, and the idea that each photograph would evoke a story line coming from the past and moving forward into the future." say from LZF.
Preparations began in the summer of 2015: location scouting, decoration tests and auditions among friends and relatives for mock up images. This was the way to go: the only thing that was missing was the literary sense that would bring this imaginary world to life.
Grassa Toro joined the team in July 2015. The first stories were born; new locations were sought; furniture, decoration objects and period costumes were gathered. An audition among actors and models in Valencia revealed who would play the characters, a team in charge of lighting, photography and digital image processing was put together and consisted of María Mira & Cauliti Photo Studio. Managed by LZF´s very own Ester Colomina and directed down to the last detail by Mariví Calvo, the wheels rolled into motion.
