In Anxious Anticipation


In this article from Kinfolk's Adrenaline Issue, we set out to evoke the hair-raising emotion of anticipation with an image set of stressful scenarios. Our creative team puts our readers on the edge of their seats as the photos creatively capture an everyday stressor in a unique and mischievous way.

"A telltale thump of the heart, the flush feeling that starts in your chest and spreads to your fingertips, the tightening of muscles and the quickening of breath: The effects of adrenaline are positively pulse-pounding, but the physical whoosh we feel in our bodies actually starts in our brains."
