Meðferðin(the Treatment).

“An on stage examination of the multiple personalities and the deep conflicts wrought by alcoholism” is how Fjölnir Gíslason, actor and author of ‘Meðferðin’, described the play to me.

We wanted to do something that expressed a lack of control over multiple emotional states ranging from totally unconscious to outbursts of violence and a regression into self loathing. With a set of strobes and my camera handy Fjölnir proceeded to explode into a tirade of physical spasms and loud outbursts whilst standing firmly in one spot. The resulting set of photos, once overlaid one on the other, is what we ended up using for the poster.
