Cities & The Dead
Invisible Cities: Adelma


"You reach a moment in life when, among the people you have known, the dead outnumber the living. And the mind refuses to accept more faces, more expressions: on every new face you encounter, it prints the old forms, for each one, it finds the most suitable mask."

Thank you. (I thought you might like it - I was aiming for a Baconesque figure & palette.)

Thank you. That's most encouraging, especially after the frustration of the last photoshoot.

Nice picture! I love the mask, and it goes wonderfully with the outfit. It looks like you've (I assume it's a self portrait) just squashed a small brown bird in your hands!

Yes, it's a self-portrait. You can't see my eyes very well, unfortunately - that mask is a little too big.

The feathered thing in my hands is another mask.

Wow, that pic is great. Was it an actual red backdrop or did you edit the colour in?

It's a red backdrop - the curtains in my studio, to be exact. I did alter the colour because I wanted a more fiery orange-red. The curtains are a darker wine-red.
