The Hollywood Reporter commissioned B&A photographer Lenne Chai to create dazzling images of up-and-coming celebrities for their story on the Next Generation of Talent. Because Lenne recently lived the experience of an emerging artist in the creative industry, she felt connected to the deep importance behind the shoot’s concept and proposed the idea of designing the set as a banquet celebrating the talents’ achievements.
Lenne faced the extra challenge of completing the shoot on two different dates in cities across the country from each other. To successfully compose her banquet scene, Lenne carefully planned prop and lighting direction and sketched out the composition of her shots in advance. Due to her creative thinking and precise attention to detail, Lenne captured these stunning images with ease.
