Snowboarding in a LED suit

Photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton captures pro snowboarder William Hughes in a L.E.D. suit during a night shoot in the Rhône-Alpes region of France.

“I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness,” says Sutton of his costume choice. “I’ve always been excited by unusual ways of lighting things, so it seemed like an exciting idea to make the subject of the film the only light source.”
