The Owls Are Not What They Seem, A Twin Peaks Photo Series

Let's rock!

As a clear sign of the show’s ongoing revival, there have been quite a few Twin Peaks themed photo shoots lately. Vice revisited the TV series not once but twice in the past year, and more recently an Icelandic magazine dressed up some of the country’s best electronic musicians as characters from the 90s television drama. Last week I happened upon yet another terrific collection of Twin Peaks inspired portraits, executed by a photographer from Edinburgh, Scotland called Solen Collet.

Wrapped in plastic

Dubbed The Owls Are Not What They Seem, the series began as the final assessment for Solen’s first year of HND Professional Photography at Stevenson College in Edinburgh… but it just kept going! “Portraiture and fashion photography are my passion and working on this series of images has been a fantastic opportunity to work with creative people, including local stylists Vi Nouveau,” she told me in an email. A massive fan of the show since she was a school kid, Solen was more than happy to introduce the world of Twin Peaks to some of the unaware models, who portray popular characters such as Audrey Horne, Dale Cooper, Laura Palmer and Killer Bob.

Even though the photographer hints that more photos will be added, the current series of 13 portraits is being displayed until the end of August at Sofi’s Bar in Edinburgh. Go and have a look if you’re in the area! The rest of the world can peek at the photos below. To accompany the exhibition, Solen also produced some Twin Peaks inspired postcards.

I feel like I know her, but sometimes my arms bend back Welcome to One-Eyed Jack's, sister! My log saw something that night Let's rock! Are you waiting for those drapes to hang themselves? Do your palms ever itch? She was leading a double life There's a sort of evil out there Don't go there, Laura! "This is principle Wolchezk..." Entering the town of Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me
