This is the reason I am in love with slow motion. It slows down the visuals and really gives us time to look at everything and take in the colors, textures, locations, clothes, lighting, poses etc. I like the pairing of purple and orange and the subtle nod to Christo's brilliant orange gates in NYC from 2005. Check out the film and stills on their website here.
