Grey Among Silver


A few years ago COOPH did a VISUAL Q&A with LA based photographer and filmmaker Niko Sonnberger. Niko recently finished shooting her first short film titled, Grey Among Silver. We asked Niko to tell us a little about the film, "It's an ominous retelling of The Little Mermaid with a kaleidoscopic twist on the original fairytale ending. More of a visual poem than a typical film narrative, cinematographer Michael Atallah frames this aphotic, surrealist story through arresting visuals and foreboding contrasts of land and sea; all while maintaining the parallels from one world to the next.”
