For his “Silent Dialog II” project, Schlumpf set up a large mirror in outdoor locations — including a giant open pit mine — and used it to create a beautiful backdrop to frame his models.
In the corner of the mine, the shoot was dwarfed by giant walls of stone:
Schlumpf and his team set up lights and shot with a Phase One XF camera and 60-megapixel XF IQ3 digital back. The nature behind Schlumpf was reflected in the mirror behind his subjects.
Here are some of the photos that resulted (including a shot from a different shoot in the snow):
