6 Perfectly-Timed Photos That Will Annoy You With Anxious Anticipation





We’re all familiar with that awful feeling we get when something terribly wrong is going to happen. Obviously, it’s an unpleasant sensation and we don’t like to feel it often.

For a Kinfolk Magazine project, photographer Aaron Tiley and designer Kyle Bean set out to recreate exactly that.

This photo project is for Kinfolk’s Adrenaline Issue and according to their official website, it aims to capture that “connection between what the mind perceives and how the body reacts.”

Looking at the photos, we’d have to agree that their attempt is a success. We couldn’t help but feel a little anxious as we wait for all hell to break loose.

Check out the images below and see for yourself:

Kinfolk’s Jordan Kushins wrote:

“Adrenaline flows into our autonomic nervous system when it anticipates that something bad is about to happen—not because something bad is already happening. This hormonal offensive was an essential survival tool for our earliest ancestors that came with our fight-or-flight response, which defends us against immediate threats.”

Kushins further added:

“To understand the physical effects of adrenaline, say hello—and thank you—to your adrenal glands. Think of them as the first responders: When a stressful situation makes your nervous system go into overdrive, these organs kick into gear, producing and secreting a powerful hormone called epinephrine, better known by its common name: adrenaline.”

I don’t know about you but I did feel terrible looking at these photos. That ink and shirt one is absolutely a disaster waiting to happen. Also, I swear I can almost hear the popping of all that bubble wrap.
