I reckon a picture should come with a story, which is definately true in this case.

Zim, the guy in the picture who is and looks like a mad scientist, is a friend of mine through many years. During the times we have been making projects together, vj-shows etc. He's a very bright mind.. a little dark in the edges though.

For 3 years we had a large photo studio and office together. One evening in april 2009, 2.30 in the evening. I was working on some presentation pictures for a Killer Clown theme party we were having. Me, a friend of mine Jesper and Marius I run my company with, had just been smoking a big joint and we were just getting at rolling up number 2 a little while later.

Then the door to the studio goes up and in comes Zim together with 4 guys that I've never seen before. They were all standing in the part of the studio that were a photo area and looking up at us while we were sitting at a plateau where we had our office and lounge area. We couldn't really see them properly because that part of the studio was unlit. The whole situation seemed a little odd. Either they were pulling a practical joke on us or something was wrong. One of the guys then came up to me. Flipped out his badge and a search warrant. Said he came from the polices narcotics department. Of course there was nothing else than the weed we were smoking.

Turned out Zim had been caught with production of ½ kilo meth amphetamines at the university where he was working as a part time teacher.

In january 2010. Zim was still waiting for the final parts of the drug trials. Whole situation would propably have turned into a shitstorm if it werent for the gang war that were raging in Copenhagen that caught most of the media attention. He weren't really affiliated with any organized crime so the police wasn't that interested in him.. so case just dragged in an eternity.

We were going to leave the studio by the 1st of february so he had to come in and remove the stuff he had in there. I had accidently thrown away a trolley he had to use for carrying some heavy equipment. So him and his friend Thermo got idiotic drunk in some sponsor booze leftovers from one of our parties I had stored in the studio. Zim sends me a text message that says he's sorry that he made a mess. He'll clean up tomorrow.

My fear at that time was that there were a party in the studio. Me and my ex girlfriend had just left each other and I had all my belongings in the studio while I was getting ready to move into a new place. New studio and new apartment was quite stressing since both demanded a lot of work and we had to be out of the studio 4 days after. I tried to got hold of Zim, but I got his friend Thermo on the phone. He said Zim was too drunk to take the phone but he had just stopped him from throwing some large object out of the window(we had our studio in one of the top floors of the building). I raced through town on my bicycle. Furious.

When I came into the studio. Place was trashed. It looked way worse than it actually was. Things destroyed was things that more or less had to be thrown out anyhow, but that was very hard to tell. Pissed as I was I ended up in argument with Zim. Then he broke down crying and said he couldn't withstand the pressure of waiting for the trials.

Then him and his friend Thermo got this idea. They wanted to ease the situation by posing nude in the studio, in the middle of the freaking mess they made themselves.

So here it is.

The Mad Scientist Meth Drama.

When they finally left (and the pictures I've posted here are far from the most disturbing ones) I kinda laughed my ass off all by myself.. thinking of the madness of the whole situation. Zim has later been very enjoyed by the fact that he actually managed to provoke me by giving me a chance to make pictures I can't almost stand to look at myself. I think I'll go for Vice Magazine with the more disturbing shots.

Another day in the office I guess.

Given 2011-02-18
Mad Scientist Meth Drama 2 by *Malach from the suggester: " The reason why I'm suggesting this photograph, is because of how fun and interesting the picture is. The lighting of the photo is just beautiful... and lets face it, male nudity is not featured enough anywhere. I'm not sure why, I guess most people are just a little hypocritical when it comes to art... But it doesn't matter, art is in the eye of the beholder. So, I hope you enjoy! The model is in jail right now, so I'm sure it would relax him a little if he realized he was famous!"

With a description like that, how could i NOT love this shot? This is one of those pieces where you DEFINITELY have to read the artist comments to appreciate it!! ( Suggested by hell-of-the-darkness and Featured by ClickClickBangUK )

Unfortunately, this actually reminds me of someone I know. I would really like to send it to him but Im not sure if he would take offense to it. Anyway, this is a very cool picture. I love the lighting and the look on his face. The story was pretty entertaining too and Im glad you thought to tell it.
Malach Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012  Professional General Artist
on the other hand, I'm pretty sure that my mad scientist friend that just got released from jail would love to see who he looks like ;]
charityleigh Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2012
Oh he just got released? Thsts good :) I'm happy to hear that he survived :)
Malach Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012  Professional General Artist
a danish prison isn't the worst place on the face of the planet to end up..
especially since he haven't been evicted of anything before, then he's sent to an open prison with internet access and possibility of studying.
charityleigh Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2012
Danish prison? I hope they fed him delicious pastries. Anyway, im glad it worked out for him. Hopefully he wont do meth anymore. We actually just had to do tis really cheesy project in school where we wrote/ sang a song about meth. Rapping is not my forte.

This is such a crazy, awesome, and unique shot. It's interesting on its own, but the story makes it even better. The foreshortening makes Zim look even more compelling and, let's be honest, so much weirder. The lighting is just superb, too, and very much reminds me of Caravaggio's style... if Caravaggio took a lot of drugs, at any rate. The way his lower teeth just pop from the darkness of his face is great.

It's always a pleasure to see something outside of normal comfort zones get a Daily Deviation.

What an absurd but interesting story. I can't help it but I find the photo fascinating somehow. Woah it's just awesome, perhaps it is the energy what grabs my attention. Grah awsome!.
Explodinglily Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011
I'm wondering if a lot of the people who don't like this one don't like it purely because the nude is not the typical beautiful, flawless, female nude that is most often posted on DA.

Personally I think this piece is brilliant! His expression and pose convey such an energy I can practically hear him roaring.
I find this a very interesting photo, with a very interesting story behind it!
Well done on it, and well done on getting the DD!

Just take a look at 'ladiespet' for example. She keeps saying rude things about this picture, and yet, her gallery is filled with whore shots that I wouldn't even call 'art'.
ClickClickBangUK Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011  Professional Photographer
personally i think attacking someones gallery for disagreeing with a DD selection is just as bad as leaving the negative comment in the first place.
angrygingermidget Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This... is the best story ever. It makes you laugh at the absurdity of it--but in a good way.

The composition of the photo is great, especially considering the spur of the moment idea that led to the photos. The lighting in excellent but... I honestly thing Zim's expression made it for me.

EXCELLENT work and congrats on the DD!!
