“Make Up Lab“
Make Up lab is the result of the first collaboration between Maayan Ben Gal en Thomas Eurlings. The idea started with a fascination for colors and textures of make up. By looking at the exclusive products of Ellis Faas, Mayaan and Thomas came up with a visual concept for shoot.This resulted in a photographic approach of showing the inspirational colors and shapes of make up in a laboratory setting. A new use to the obvious.
