Light painting experiment.
There is only one small (flash)light used to enlight this image, manually operated.
Due to the long shutter, the sky turned out red. I made it a little bit stronger, to enhance the feeling in the photo.
Please look at the details for more information about how this image is made and read my explanation below... any further questions, shoot!


Concept
We've always had cats at home. Only 2 of them died on a natural way. I noticed both of them had a feeling... Some kind of realization they are at the end of existence.

Without any bound of society and in the middle of nature, I show a person. Being photographed on a surrealistic and experimental way. Unrecognizable, so you can fill in anybody you want, but especially yourself.

Running away from society brings her into a deep and psychological journey. An experience where she will come face to face with herself, life and death. The inner desire for change and alternation is gnawing. Loneliness and fear create a new confrontation between good and evil, unknowing what is to be defined correct or bad... The soul is not longer attached to the body, and her soul not longer to the world.

The photos are unmanipulated. Effects are obtained with a long shutter time, manually working with strobes, colorfilters, and a simple flashlight.


From the same series, please also enjoy:

I'm not putting my name on my photos because it brakes 'em down and it's more fun to watch it when they are pure.
SO PLEASE respect my works and respect the copyright... I'm a young artist...


Thank you!!
