They always remain with me

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 9 June 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

A photo montage from three separate frames shot at the Medieval Fayre in Jarrow held on Sunday 22nd. May 2011. I think these were all part of the Anglo Saxon camp.

Some heavy editing going on to get inside this guy's imagination lol :-)

Florence from Paris, France

Clearly a very GOTHIC process and présentation.The guy in the foreground looks very cahrismatic, almost "christic"... don't know if the word exists in english (if no, let's create it ! ) :-)))

9 Jun 2011 9:06am

@Florence: No.....I want him to be a warrior thinking of the next battle.

Very interesting - this all works together quite nicely, just not so sure about the red. I'll have to contemplate on it a bit more.

9 Jun 2011 1:43pm

@Jason Politte: Think of warriors remembering the last battle and preparing for the next. Perhaps think of lost parents, I think that's where I was going.

joemulligan from United States

There is a strong feeling of getting into the unconscious nightmare world which is powerful and emotionally evocative. But the black speckled look seems messy (to me).
