At the 2018 High Water Music Festival in North Charleston, South Carolina, back in April, photographer Sully Sullivan of LawtonMiles wanted to take his portraits with the performing musicians to another level, so he decided to build a flooded house set submerged in water.
LawtonMiles filmmaker Adam Boozer made this 5-minute behind-the-scenes video showing how the whole thing went down.
Here are some images showing how the unusual set was built:
“All the bands had such a great response to it,” Sullivan says in the video.
Some of the musicians came up with their own creative, playful touches for their portraits, while others kicked back and had quiet moments to themselves while lying down on the roof. Here are some of the portraits Sullivan made:
In addition to Sullivan’s still photos, Boozer also shot a series of 5K vertical video portraits of the artists.
