ARTPICS: Artist Patrick Hall’s portraits of people being tasered.

Founder of fstoppers Patrick Hall has photographed a group of women and men getting tasered.

He explains:

‘I am always trying to make people feel comfortable in front of my camera so I can capture a real emotion from them.‘ Hall says in his project description ‘But what if I was able to make people feel so uncomfortable in front of the camera that I could guarantee an interesting portrait every time?’

Searing pain, surprising bliss, anxiety and laughter are all present raw emotions that feature throughout the nearly 100-person photo series, each completely unrestrained, diverse and dynamic in their finality.
