I braved a hundred storms to leave you ——— [Threading Darkness series]

2/3

 

Series of three, the first installment is here, , and the second is right here.

I had a big debate with a friend on whether or not to post this photo. She said it was too creepy, to scary even for me. That it was a horrible sight, that it gave the impression that I was really dead and that it was in bad taste. But I figured, if we're scared to post art that reminds us of death, aren't we giving in? Aren't we succumbing to the generalized fear of death, when what we should be doing is celebrating life? I deal with my fears through photography; it's how I deal with most things in my life. And this is one of those times, when my art is helping me face one of my fears and helping me overcome. I'm not going to say I'm not afraid of dying (who isn't?) but through these tiny macabre bits, I fight that fear a little. And maybe, through this very piece, I'll help someone else deal with it as well.

 

Either way, I'm not filtering it. If any of you thinks this might be offensive, or in bad taste, instead of reporting me please let me know through PM and I'll filter the shot.

 

The theme song for this is this song. .
