WHY

The theme of the shoot is: Sustain && Survive, we chose this to encapsulate the two visions of each company. Bôhten practices sustainability in their eyewear and portraitnoire aims to protect the survivability of the black portrait. 

Each of our models also represent a country in Africa and the colors of the shoot will have a mostly neutral backdrop/background all shot in natural light with pops of bold reds greens and black to bring full circle the concept of sustainability in Africa.
