I wanted to create a project that had contrasting themes of both light and dark, which is why I altered the dress used in the photos. The dress has been ripped, teared, covered with red paint, and also has beads and embellishments that symbolize blood and scars. The setting of a graveyard also matches the theme, as I was inspired heavily by Catholic and gothic architecture, fashion, and stories. Just like with the photography, I wanted to contrast beauty and gore to create a magical and mysterious atmosphere with dark undertones.

My friend Poppy is the model in these shots, and her look complements the project so well.
