"We all are innocent till the darkness consumes us" is the quote that is behind the project. Each photograph represents the darkness and how it can consume you. With the first photograph you start off as innocent but the darkness slowly takes it toll on you gradually though each photograph. The concept behind this comes from every day life whether it be a lie or fib to something bigger. It could represent guilt, pressure or pain anything really. Its the thing that makes you feel unsettled. We are all only truly innocent at birth. That is the time that we come into this world but as we listen we can already hear the voices of light and dark even if we don’t understand them yet. As we get older the darkness tends to pull us in. We break the vase on the table and blame it on an animal or tell your parents you are at a friends house when in reality you are out doing something else. We all have this dark passenger but you have to choose whether or not you want it to consume you. A good example would be Spiderman 3 he is a good guy but there was this little bit of darkness that attached it self on to petter parker and load and behold the darkness took over and he liked it at first but then he saw what the darkness was doing to him and to others around him so he choose to do away with the darkness and become the hero again that he so loved.
I choose the colours that I believe that would represent light and dark. White as the light and black as the dark. I also kept a little skin tone to show that there is a person behind the masks of light and dark. I used the background to bring out those colours and to separate myself from the wall. At first each pose did not really have a meaning they were just poses that I thought were interesting. Then I came to realize that they do have a sort of meeting. The first image with a blank stare and no true awareness of what darkness is. The second a more awareness the darkness is overcoming the body. The third is like the second but maybe appreciation of the darkness. The fourth realizes that darkness has almost taken over completely and just realized that it might not be such a good things. The fifth one you are consumed in darkness so you feel your body to make sure that you're still in there if the person you knew still exists somewhere inside of you as if you’re trying to find the light. Theres are just my ideas of the story but I like to leave the interoperation to the spectator and let them decide what the meaning of the photos are.
