"I've been swallowed by this wreck that you call your life. I'm damaged from the inside. I've been broken. Don't threaten me with what you think I feel. If you could read my mind you\'d be in tears"
This was my favorite piece in your collection. The dead palate here works phenomenally in that it shows us the bleakness of a broken life (that our subject has). I gathered this before I even read the poem. I think that if we saw the eyes (as suggested in the poem) I get the sense that it'd be too great a sadness to bear. But the mouth, parched and fractured lips, tells us everything we need to know about the subject; that life is cruel and needs no identification. Great piece. it reminds me of some of the poetry I write.
Yes, this is how I perceive this photo! I wanted to be dark and eerie. I wanted to show exactly what you just described. I am really glad that you go this much out of this photo. Which is simple to others and very complex to others too. I am really happy that you like it and I will have to go read your poems sometimes!
Happy to oblige. Yea I checked out your pieces on facebook and thought they were great too (oh and thanks for the watch! ). Your poem inspired me to post one on my journal page on my profile on deviant art. I've got a link in the journal entry to a few of the poems I've got published if you have free time to check them out. Once again, great work, and I'll definitely be checking your work frequently.
Lol awwww marshall!!!! That might have been one of the best comments anyone has ever made about my work!!! Idk, I just try to take the photo when I am feeling what I want to capture or I just have to think of something that puts me in that place I need to be, to be able to capture that moment in the picture that people can relate to. (: Thank you soooo much Marshall.
Aww, that's kind of awesome and sucks as well. Unhappy, upset, and hurt Emily is not a Good Emily. Happy Emily is a Good Emily! I'm glad it makes your photos awesome, but it sucks that sometimes you truly feel what your expressing through your pictures.
Lol yeah but really if you think about it, it is a good way of letting out all of my emotions. I hate bottling things up so this really really helps! But nooooo, hurt Emily is no fun! lol Thank you so much Marshall! You truly are one of the best friends that I have!
I hate bottling things up as well, but I can't or don't know how to vent what I'm feeling. That is good though, at least it's good and productive for you. You're welcome. That's good to know. You're one of my best buds too.
