Director Jesse Laitinen gives multinational models free rein as both photographer and subject in this video compilation

London-based photographer and director Jesse Laitinen gives multinational models free rein to experiment with their own style and personal perspective in this short compilation video for Document. Each model exhibits their individuality as they introduce themselves in their mother tongue and experiment with dynamic poses, angles, and how they position themselves in relation to the camera lens. In the screen-saturated reality of pandemic existence, Laitinen’s film recalls the webcam novelty of the early 2000s as models take the position of being both in front of and behind the camera.
