Head of Photography Brada shows how treating photos like cinematic stills gives a compelling depth to your work – and invites the viewer into the story you want to tell.

To identify photos that work well together, I like to imagine them as parts of a single story: I look for repetition in the motifs, common visual traits, and often find remarkable overlap between photos – even though they were taken by different photographers in different places.

This curated collection contains images with a cinematic feel – photos reminiscent of the golden age of cinema, where each frame tells its own compelling story. Let your imagination run wild.
