Title: Silent Memories
Like the shot? Fav it!
She stands, silently, surrounded by the silence of the universe around
She meditates, silently, on the infinite possibilities that life is now offering to her.
She remembers, silently, moments and faces that had once been everything... and now nothing.
She stands alone.... in silent memories.

Third of a series of shots from my largest shoot ever (check out some backstage shots HERE - www.facebook.com/pages/Von-Wong-Photography-Montreal-Base....
The original concept developed when I met model Fey Cody online, who told me that she had lost many people in her life and would like to do something that showed how they're spirits still lived on and were carried on within her. The result here was some spontaneous re-adaptation in the middle of the shoot while some test shots were being taken.
The idea of the final post-processing of the images was to have something really surreal surrounding our gorgeous model to emphasize how alone she really is.... despite everything supernatural that's happening around her.
To me, I feel that in our moments of sorrow, we focus so much on the crappyness of our lives that we fail to see that life around is actually quite beautiful and vibrant - as long as we take the time to appreciate it.
The starlit sky was borrowed from this magnificent website: spacespin.org/article.php/new-stars-shed-light-past
I think they really helped make the image sparkle and shine.
I'd like to thank and credit all the people that were involved in this shooting and that made it possible:
- Fey Cody (Main Model/Concept builder as well as the one responsible for organizing the studio rental and technical lighting team)
- Joëlle Stébenne (Designer of the dress that I had commissioned)
- Joanie Lapointe (Makeup artist, Hair stylist, Airbrush artist)
- Jeanine. C (Model Coach, Makeup assistant)
- Julius Adarna( Photography Assistant )
Hope I didn't forget anyone!
Lately, I've decided that investing more time, money and talent into my shoots would result in more satisfying results and I am definitely not disappointed!
