Absolution by Yellow Cop Ft. Christine Bowley

Many years ago (back in 2003) I saw a music video of The White Stripes’ “I just don’t know what to do with myself” featuring Kate Moss and directed by Sofia Copolla. I was hooked straight away and always wanted to create something that beautiful. Back then I have never even taken a photograph, let alone make a video.

Fast forward to now and I’m a full time photographer but just starting to get into some video, but I thought it was time try to create something inspired by that music clip.

I messaged my amazing friend Christine because damn who better to be my dancer (we have shot together some three times before this, so we know really well how each other works)?

And then it was all a matter of finding a location (the date was set straight away).

At first I was considering a place without a pole, but Christine said she could actually do some pole dancing, so I shift my search (with only 5 days to find a venue) and I found one very close to me, in Fortitude Valley (Brisbane): Pure Pole Academy. I also asked my trainee/assistant to be, Kat, to join us, to assist me, and she ended up owning the second camera!

So enough talking, here’s the final result (and some stills I shot while filming it). If you have seen Kate Moss’ video you might think “oh this is a bit different”… well, that video was my inspiration, and I was not trying to copy it exactly how it was.

And some shot on film

If you love the final result as much as I do, show the team some love:

Lyrics

Yellow Cop – Absolution

I look into you´re eyes
and I saw the end of the world
Are we never in love
but god, what could
it be, gone 

Can´t express myself
Can´t express myself
The absolution
Can’t express myself
Can’t express myself
The absolution of love

You are so precious babe
You are so precious babe
That´s what you are
You are so precious babe
You are so precious babe
That’s what you.. 

And the next time
You say don talk guess I’ll talk,
because no one
can lead my life 

I need to compromise my life
And I say
That you always saw
My bad side 

Because, can’t express myself
Can’t express myself
Because, cant express myself
Cant express myself
The Absolution of 

You are so precious babe
You are so precious babe
That´s what you are
You are so precious babe
You are so precious babe
That’s what’s you 

You are so precious babe
You are so precious babe
That´s what you are
You are so precious babe
You are so precious babe
That’s what you are…
The absolution of love… 

And I said
I´m busy for you
For me
You´re falling on my little tricks
