“Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now. As I slooshied, I knew such lovely pictures!” – ClockWork Orange 1971 (Stanley Kubrick)
So for the last of the FujiGFX shoot I got my inspiration from one of my all time favorite movies and directors.
Model & Make Up – Sinead Thorpe (Boss Models)
Drawn to Light Studios
Concept & Photographer – Neil Van Schalkwyk
The idea was to use fashion to highlight the ongoing problem we face with abuse in our society. Where offenders so often don’t ever face the harsh reality of their crimes and never realise the consequences of their actions or get to see the unseen scars that remain long after the incidents. These events that so often get romanticized in relationships and go unseen because of shame and emotional manipulation.
Speak up, your voice is your freedom!
Enough is enough, violence only begets more violence.
