Photographer Laurie Basset pays a subtle homage to Tom Hardy’s masterpiece Far from the Madding Crowd portraying Louise in a bucolic setting of meandering trails and rocky cliffs. The fresh beauty of the young woman has something of the puritan pride of the literary heroine Bathsheba Everdene, an impression strengthen by the clothing inspired by Victorian rural working class. Laurie’s lens wanders around the rolling hills and catches the pale Autumn sun shining on the fields, and the golden flares of Louise’s hair. Crimson lips and penetrating eyes make up for the general lack of action, filling up the quiet emptiness of British countryside with great intensity. The black and white photography gives to the scenes a timeless feeling.
