Patrick Hall is a South Carolina-based photographer that likes to take his work to new levels. His latest project took his work to new levels of pain, and he did that by capturing the pure, unadulterated pain of people getting tased by their loved ones. Salon.com reported on Aug. 27, 2014, that The Taser Photoshoot has really taken on a mind of its own, and it is incredible.
The Taser Photoshoot actually is a series of photographs and a few slow-motion videos of people's facial expressions as they are being tased. As Patrick Hall explains at the end of the video, it's the moment when they are struck with 300,000 volts of electricity from a stun gun.
The video is quite phenomenal as you can see their faces as they prepare for the jolt. Then, their bodies convulse and freak out once friends and family hit them with the taser.
Chive.com reported that Hall did it as an experiment to see how people can change their expressions so quickly depending on what happens to them in a split second. They also stated that he wanted to make his volunteers extremely uncomfortable.
"Despite all the barriers it presented and the countless people who thought I was a sadist, crazy, or just outright irresponsible, I decided to finally stop talking about this idea and actually execute it. The results were pretty hilarious."
All of the pictures, as well as the video, for The Taser Photoshoot are safe for work as they show no actual nudity. The most you will see on women is their shoulders and on men, the camera will go down to about their sternum.
