World-renowned fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton  shot this incredible film of a ghostly snowboarder wrapped in glowing low-energy LED lights swooshing through snow and trees at night. Sutton told Nowness that he always dreamed about an illuminated figure breezing through the dark alone, so he commissioned John Spatcher to design this incredible suit wrapped in LED lights, which pro snowboarder William Hughes  donned before hitting the Tignes slopes in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France. Check out Sutton’s incredible “Glowing Man” video  after the jump.
Sutton  used a Red Epic  camera to make this film, a $58,000 piece of equipment that captured the Artec-sponsored snowboarder  navigating the last of France’s winter snow. The entire project was commissioned by Nowness  – an online platform that documents stories in the luxury world of art, culture, design, fashion, food, film, and more. Although this shoot probably cost enough money to feed an entire Ethiopian village, we are big fans of LED lights here at Inhabitat  and we really love that they are getting such inspiring attention from the “bespoke” community.
