Creative Spotlight: ‘The Morning After’ By Ryan Saradjola

There’s calm even in the eye of the storm – or so the saying goes. Even in the roughest environments it’s possible to find a moment of comfort and peace. At a busy roundabout in Wandsworth, South West London, photographer Ryan Saradjola found just such a place, and he knew it was the place to shoot an editorial exclusively for Spindle.

I was fascinated by the location that I had come across,’ he said. ‘It is such a busy area for traffic and routes in and out of the city of London, yet there is a secluded underpath which is rarely used.

‘I wanted to create a story with that vibe of seclusion, and for the models to have a connection and familiarity with the environment. The concrete walls hide people away from what is around them, which is mainly traffic with a massive structure that holds an advertisement. Myself and the stylist Jared were really keen on the idea of using formal clothing and placing that in this type of environment.’
