Embedded in the Frost by Gilraen-Taralom Embedded in the Frost by Gilraen-Taralom
Model: Carolyn ~FindMyFairytale :iconfindmyfairytale:
Make-up: Shalisha Nason
Photographer: Me
Editing: Me


Throw me in the landfill
Don't think about the consequences
Throw me in the dirt pit
Don't think about the choices that you make
Throw me in the water
Don't think about the splash I will create
Leave me at the altar
Knowing all the things you just escaped

Push me out to sea
On the little boat that you made
Out of the evergreen
That you helped your father cut away
Leave me on the tracks
To wait until the morning train arrives
Don't you dare look back
Walk away, catch up with the sunrise

'cause this is torturous
Electricity between both of us
And this is dangerous
'cause I want you so much
But I hate your guts
I hate you

So leave me in the cold
Wait until the snow covers me up
So I cannot move
So I'm just embedded in the frost
Then leave me in the rain
Wait until my clothes cling to my frame
Wipe away your tear stains
Thought you said you didn't feel pain

Well this is torturous
Electricity between both of us
And this is dangerous
'cause I want you so much
But I hate your guts

I want you so much
But I hate your guts

Well this is torturous
Electricity between both of us
And this is dangerous
'cause I want you so much
But I hate your guts

I want you so much
But I hate your guts

I saw the title of this deviation and was incredibly excited--"Landfill" is such a beautifully sad song. This photo is also quite fantastic. (:

Gilraen-Taralom Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011  Student Photographer
lol, yeah, the first comments of the model when she saw this was "why do I look dead?". But at first I was trying to move away from the whole "death" thing, but in the end, you just have to go with what the photo gives you

Oh, I don't mean it as any kin of slight by any stretch, Gilraen-T. I really appreciated the still beauty of that photo. It was eerie and so much tulle, like too much for the living tulle, as if to hide something about the person underneath. Like the fact she wasn't alive, for instance. I did not at all mean to shoe-horn the picture into any sort of category. It really speaks for itself, and can have many interpretations!

Oh, I know what you meant. I wasn't offended. I was just saying that the outcome wasn't my original vision. When I was working with this shot, it is so set in it's meaning that I couldn't do anything to change it. After a while I didn't want to change it. This picture has a voice of it's own and I just went with what it told me. But I am really glad that you like it

It's true, it really does speak for itself. Do you think you might shoot more in this style? It's arresting, in terms of visuals. Actually a really bizarre mix (to my eye) of 'Oh how beautiful' and 'Oh how frightening'. I just found that so interesting. For instance, I found this creepier than some of the more gory photos I've seen floating around. Kept expecting her to open her eyes. If that ain't unsettling, I don't know what is. Lol!

Actually, I have a couple of ideas that kinda like that. I want to do a portrait about abortion, but I have yet to get ahold of a pregnant model! But yeah, thinking a dead person is going to open their would unsettle anyone I think
Reply
:iconmagicbunni:
MagicBunni Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That abortion one does sound like it will be quite controversial. Pregnant models must be difficult to find! Isn't so much of modelling about keeping an ideal shape? I wonder if they wouldn't feel strange about showing the baby bump? Though I may be out-to-lunch about that, in fact. But, yeah, the eyes-will-open-eerie sense was a big part of your photo for me.

I've seen a lot of photos of women who are pregnant, I just don't know any pregnant women! But now I have the huge inspiration with eerie death portraits, grr soo many good ideas and not enough time!!

kinda, it was created to be more conceptual. The point of the photo isn't the fact that she is dead. Her being dead is more or less symbolic of how she is feeling. Her inward emotion is expressed on the exterior.

It's a song. My friend(the model) and I did a collaborative shoot based off of the lyrics. This is one of the shots from the series
