Lights Out
Have you ever thought about who will be the last one in this planet to go out and turn off the lights? This is a journey through real places where premonitions have already come true and a light dress reminds us that we are slowly using up everything.

A beautiful project created by the Peruvian photographer Esteban Brocos trying to create a collective consciousness, it takes a long time to be ready but here it is.

From conceptualization to realization, his awesome team, finally makes it happen. It took so many days to create the dress, then find the ideal locations and finally the stress of something they could not manage: the extremely short time of natural light in the dawn and in the evening.

HOW IT WAS MADE?

When Esteban got the crazy idea to dress a woman with 300 bulbs and more than 2,020 watts of power, not many joined him. It was an idea with high possibilities of a big failure. Make that dress was big challenge, from design to confection, so Esteban picked up the phone and called his friend and talented fashion designer, Norberto Rojas, he told him about the project and without any doubt they started to work. It took about 3 months to know how to build the structure, they needed to make it all work and be safe for the model so they asked a lot of experts how to manage those 300 light bulbs safely. Another issue was the model, someone who besides being beautiful, could be totally a warrior, thin but strong enough to hold a dress that finally ended up weighing more than 23 pounds. Shootings that begun at 2:30 a.m. and nights without moon in the middle of nowhere no one but Angie Keith could fit perfect for that mission. It also happened with Meyo Guzman and Javier Paz, 2 spectacular stylists who has worked with Esteban for the last 4 years. Ian Land and Javier Henao are his 2 unconditional assistants that literally light his way, always ready for anything. Derek Lee cinematographer and his soul brother, who made spectacular shots for the making of that you´ll see soon. And so many people who supports Esteban´s Idea: his beautifil and talented wife Tatiana, his friend Diego Flórez, and his partner Sara Nicolas. To find the perfct locatiosn Esteban and his team traveled through Panama searching for those places, abandoned and with and interesting story. They cross the whole country and found some planes seized by drug traffic at the Albrook airport. Then an awesome hotel abandoned since the 70s in Contadora island that was property of a drugs cartel Chief, a boat, a dry forest dying because of the eternal summer and a desert that every time ceases to be. Real places with real and very sad stories.
