Luke Bather - 21st Feb 2017

Thomas Ralph puts Stevie Parker in some awkward, isolated situations in this candid video for 'Without You'.

Taking a very guerilla-style run-and-gun approach to the clip, we see Stevie lip-sync along to the song in public as passersby react in the way you'd expect; confused and guarded. The song's themes of strong-headed independence are contrasted with the isolated imagery of Stevie on her own, surrounded by people in some very beautifully composed shots.

The frigid coldness of a winter morning in London shines through adding extra layers to the video's emotional ambiguity, as well as the intentionally 'boxed-in' look of shooting in a square aspect ratio.
