I have been working on my thesis a lot lately (though not nearly as much as I should be), and it brings me in a rather macabre mood..
Not because it's not going very well, but because of the subject:
I am writing my thesis on the Ikkaku Ochi collection, which is a collection of medical photographs from Japan, from around the 1900s.

I am writing about the peculiar type of beauty these pictures possess, and how they appeal to me, and repel me at the same time.
About how much more a picture can make you feel when it does that (though I have to package that assumption in something sort of scientific..), so much more then when something is merely 'beautiful'

Though believe me, I am very often in the mood for something 'merely' beautiful
especially when I suround myself with images of death an decay

But not today, today I do a feature inspired by my thesis.. these pictures are not a literal interpretation of that ofcourse, it's just how they make me feel

ofcourse!
I just had another look at your gallery an hour ago or so, and you really have some amazing macabre stuff :nod:
(and not the typical weepy-gothic-teenage-DA-stuff, but really really good and original darkish art! Hard to find sometimes)

plus, you seemed to have worked with :iconfairyviper: a lot, and she is one of my favorite models here on DA

anyway, thank you for having a look at my clumsy feature, I'm glad you liked it :)
