Most Photographs We Look At Are Calming,

family, friends, pets, land or seascapes,

 but I found these in Kinfolk Magazine, the magazine’s newest photo story for their “Adrenaline” issue, anything but calming, 

 Kinfolk reached out to art director Kyle Bean and photographer Aaron Tilley to produce a series of images that would bring their audience apprehension,

  inspiring the artists to produce the series “In Anxious Anticipation” featured here, 

 looking at the pictures I always think of the worst rather than the best outcome, 

 Jordan Kushins‘s text on anticipation and adrenaline accompanies Tilley and Bean’s clean photographs of the moments before misfortune, “Whether we’re readying ourselves for the start of an event or just imagining ourselves partaking in it, the buzz of nervous anticipation is sometimes as satisfying as the reward at the end,” says Kushins. “Often just the thought of what if? can be as potent as the act itself, and the thrill of the chase may occasionally be more powerful than the real deal.”

You can see more stories from Kinfolk’s Adrenaline issue on their website, more work from Tilley can be found on his Tumblr, and Bean on his Instagram, and no I am not on commission from Kinfolk, I just thought it was a neat magazine with some thought provoking photographs.
