Frank Ocean’s performance of “Forrest Gump” at the Grammys got some mixed reviews, but everyone agreed that his immersive visual set-up was just right. As the singer stood in front of a large video projection, a group of BMX-riding acolytes followed him into the horizon. Hiro Murai directed the clip in the mountains around Acton, California, and photographer Clara Aranovich was on set to capture Ocean’s transformation. Scroll through for this exclusive look at Frank Ocean amidst big skies, fancy cameras, and pom poms galore.
