Separated from the love of her life, Serengeti refuses to let him go, even if that means following him into the underworld.
The underworld is nothing but an endless sea of lost souls, searching for themselves, and trying to get back to reality.
There is nothing to bring them together but their love and the crystal Serengeti wears around her neck, a gift from her love on the day of his death.
This photo shoot has been the most intense production we have ever undertaken. Over 20 models were photographed over 2 days of shooting. Custom wardrobe and makeup was designed specifically for every member of the cast.

We built a rig to bury everyone waist deep in sand, while allowing them to move freely. Each of the lost souls was photographed in different configurations in the rig, allowing for a composite image that wouldn't repeat.

Each group of souls was cut out by hand in Photoshop and re-colored to match their new landscape. Souls were brought together to form the desert mountains you see in these images. No shortcuts were taken, the landscape alone took more than 100 hours of work combining thousands of people to make a realistic world made out of lost souls.
