Francesca Woodman - I really like how the artist has managed to create a macabre and ghostly atmosphere within their photograph by getting the sitter to move almost as if they are attempting to shield themselves from the daylight streaming through the open window. I also feel like the scene of destruction within the image, littered all over the floor, also adds to the idea of spirits and the macabre atmosphere.
pinner said; I grew up in a small, rural town in between mountains. A couple of years ago, they were tearing down an old elementary school. A guy my mom knew went in and took pics with his cell phone. When he uploaded them, this was one of the pictures. I don’t believe in stuff like this at all. I just really don’t know how to explain it since it was a cell phone pic and I’m pretty sure that no one in my podunk hometown knows how to make fake pics. Via source
We all wear a mask throughout our life that we believe defines who we are. We are defined by our appearances, wealth, or knowledge. Hamlet realizes that we are all going to take off our masks at death. Underneath our mask we are all inherently the same.
