Quiet // Motion

“It’s like we’re secret superheroes, with two alter egos for each person.” – Quiet // Motion participant

Brence Coghill conceived and shot this creative portrait photography series contrasting physical quietness with fluid energy.

Two aspects of each person are portrayed: a tightly framed still, introspective moment alongside a full-length dynamic study with a surreal or absurd sense of motion.

A simple one-light setup for each shot keeps the emphasis on the contrasting sense of energy within each image pair – the quiet vs. dynamic mood is communicated through expression and gesture rather than heavy-handed lighting cues.
