the macallan Focus
For the sixth and latest edition of The Macallan’s renowned Masters of Photography series, the distillery has collaborated with the one and only Steven Klein on a short film and 10 still images. Entitled Time Captured, the project conveys “a world standing still in a single moment in time”—a moment that is explored through Klein’s moving camera.
Klein explains, “Typically with consumption of alcohol, there is always an abundance of movement. I thought, ‘what if it had all stopped for a moment and I could take a closer look?’”
The photographer’s signature air of mystique and dark glamour permeates the video, which takes viewers to a dramatic tableau displaced in space and time, draped with a cast of enigmatic, vampiresque models. The images and film are accompanied by a standout, limited-edition whisky, which comes in a special black case with a signed Klein print and bar tools by the Roca brothers.
