King For A Day

You have never been in love /
until you've seen the sunlight thrown /
over smashed human bones.

Morrissey - First Of The Gang To Die

Three Photos, titled "King For A Day", "Minus Obsolete" and
"The Awakening". I'm not shure if the third photo is actually
necessary to understand the concept.

Surreal nude photography, the story is told backwards: She wakes up, crawles along the ground and then turns into the 'king' on the left side. A transformation from human to alien, from emotion to abstraction, from having a face to not even having a head.

Model: The incredible IvN alias
~Azariaelle. Thank you very much, honey. This one wouldn't exist without your help.


Canon EOS 350d, EF-S 60mm/f2.8

Great work! I totally agree with the first comment. The left picture is something more special then the others with this pose. But for sure that doesn't mean that the other ones aren't good as well :)

I liked the first one. No head no sexuality, no identity.

Very well done.
