“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody”

I like to think the title of any piece of art as a hint on what and why the piece wants to represent and thus provide an angle in which it should be viewed. And, with luck, get a thinking process of my own going to enjoy the end result in most diverse way possible. With this one, it seems I am in luck.. lots of it. 

In this case, the picture suggests to me that as sad as it may be, isolation might be of her own doing to get away and turn her back from all dark and thus evil there are instead of other people having knowingly left her alone. I am also amazed how simple effects in the picture can have such strong impact as to the mood this creates. A clear sign of something done right… :)

The chosen model is perfect for a picture like this. The contrast of her white skin vs black dress and background as well as articulated make-up all add up to the picture to make it a great picture that it is. That said, with such a skin and appearance, I hope there might be other interesting ideas for her to emerge from dark backgrounds…

thank you for your kind words! I wanted her to be herself, she has this weird feeling of tragedy in her. She is indeed a lovely girl but you feel this kind of isolation in her

I think coming to model for a photograph and reveal such a true side of herself is a brave thing to do. 

It's weird how some pictures make me think I know a bit of that person and what (s)he is like although there is no faintest idea if its true or not. It's like walking blindfolded, you start taking steps followed by another, perhaps each with obvious logic between them, but no idea if the direction they take you is anywhere near the correct one. Imagine the surprise if some interpretation on a picture is even close to correct... That is why I did not dare to speculate earlier e.g. if she'd find other people difficult to trust or not being able to _really_ understand her, hence leaving her feeling isolated. 

Anyway. whatever the background, a great picture of a very interesting model. :)

To se mi moc líbí, emočně se mnou souzní.
Připadá mi zajímavá volba kompozice - tedy ten fakt, že před dívkou není prostor, že kouká do kraje fotky (tedy naopak než bývá doporučováno). Myslím, že to dává fotografii nový rozměr, že to má svůj symbolismus.

vono porušování pravidel má občas něco do sebe, děkuju za pochvalu, jsem ráda, že se to líbí :)
