Late addition, I know. Wasn't really happy with it the first time around, so I just let it rot for a while, then it kind of came back to me and I did some dodge and burn, hoorah... blah

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-06-16
It's as if the character in the portrait is waiting for you to enter. Haunting and gritty and well captured and framed.

In Silent Hill Two, there's this hotel, on the shores of the fog-bound Lake Toluca, that you enter and find seemingly uninhabited, brooding and still. You can almost smell the cold and stale funk, the human occupants long gone; you alone in a grey-and-brown dominated place full of silence and dark corners. The kind of place offering no refuge from memory, whether fond or painful. This picture really took me back there. Thanks... really.

The entire series is amazing.
I love the mask..The darkness of it all.
It reminds me of Silent Hill or something.

Thanks :D, I love Silent Hill (1-4), it's one of the most mindblowing game series I've ever had the pleasure of playing :)

Excellent series. I think the addition of a model to your urban shots works really well in this series, and could continue to work well for you if you continued working with models in the future.

I love the grunge effect in this, and how every crack and smear of dirt is visible. It really helps with the dark feel, and the way you can't see through the window but can't entirely make out the reflections either is wonderful.

Another aspect that attracts me to this is the positioning of the model. If they were looking to their left with their arms positioned by their side, they'd appear as if searching for someone after finding nothing in the house, interacting with the scene. But by interacting with the viewer instead, it's more of a macabre portrait, as if they're saying "hello, my name is so-and-so, and this is my home."

Still, congratulations on the DD, and credit to both you for taking such a wonderful shot and ~MyNameIsSwann for making such a beautiful mask. Well done!

Amazingly detailed comment, a real pleasure to read, so for that I thank you.

Indeed I loved using a model for my work, it brings out a whole new level of interactivity with enviroment, and I most certainly am going to use a model for some of the urban photography to come. In fact this series of photos was supposed to be released along with a longer series, that I've been working on for some time, gathering the equipment necessery, but it got delayed. I'm hoping I can complete it this week :)

Thank you again for the great insight on the work :)

Thank you kindly dear sir! It was kind of intentional, not necessarily Fallout 3, but I love me some post-apocalyptic imagery and I tried to do just that :)

Thank you! I'll most certainly try :)

Strangely, I was just listening to the soundtrack for Sympathy For Lady Vengeance, when I read this :lol: . I love Park's films, they are what partly motivated me to start photographing.

Yeah, I fell in love with Korean movies not too long ago, some of them are just something special :love:
Reply
:iconghostrider-in-ze-sky:
Indeed :) , I've got a soft spot for them as well (oh who am I kiddin I friggin love them), and I would go as far as to say that at the moment they have the most powerful film (in terms of quality) industry in the world :lol:

I think I agree with you...although I mostly watch Korean films that feature the actor Song Kang Ho. He's just a genius!
Reply
:iconghostrider-in-ze-sky:
YES! YES he is. Such an awesome guy. Alongside Ha-kyun Shin and Byung-Hun Lee he's one of my favorites :). Thirst is gonna be awesome, by the looks of it's going to be one of Song's greatest roles.
