From ‘Consumed’, David Cronenberg, 2014 – ‘Arostigui turned to her and pulled his mouth open to one side with his index finger, the effect was grotesque. Into the very mouth of the cannibal, don’t you want that picture? Naomi began shooting, she changed lenses quickly; an extreme wide angle lens now and continued snapping getting very close. Arostigui played it seriously and intensely, his gums and teeth completely exposed on one side and somehow, perversely naked. The photos were very disturbing.’
