Photographer Thomas Brown and creative director Anna Burns have teamed up to produce Pop Pop BANG, a project which explores the masculine appeal of B-movies. Using common themes found in the films – guns, girls, fast cars and explosions – the pair have created three installations in British landscapes using another British staple at this time of year, the umbrella.
Brown, who is primarily a still life photographer has worked with clients such as Adidas, Boots, Cadbury and Another Magazine while Burns has directed shoots for French Connection, Vogue and Nokia.
Situated in a forest, London’s docklands and the grounds of Suffolk Manor house the Pop Pop BANG photographs are only part of the story. Brown and Burns have also produced a film to accompany the stills, which shows their formation (and demise in the case of the explosive image).
