The concept for these photos is “date night gone wrong.”
I was inspired by the beautiful aesthetics of Izima Kaoru’s images, which proposed that death held a sort of mysterious allure behind it. His muses’ polished looks & pretty clothes created a stark contrast to the deep slumber that they had succumb to: death.
The cause of death in these photos is up to interpretation. Whether I tripped in my heels and struck my head against the railing of the pier or if I was poisoned by my mystery date moments before remains to be unseen.
“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forget life, to be at peace.” —Oscar Wilde, The Canterville Ghost
