This is another project, that took off from an existing idea and transformed into something completely different along the way. The starting photo was to perform a tribute to the "Silent Hill" videogame, by creating and shooting both my own original "monster" for it and the Keymaster and the iconic Nurse. Each creature of 'Dementia' had a "normal" existence once, but fell into madness and rage after a certain event happened in his/her life. Also, each has its own 'totem', an item that they are obsessed with and can't be without (which would serve as a weak point in a videogame).
It was shot between 2011-2015 and finally edited in 2019 & 2020, after many failed edits and re-edits. The final result is meant to approximate the "Dark/Distored World" of the "Silent Hill" games, full of rust and disturbing colours. I should also point out that this project would not have been possible without the work of make-up artist Jennifer Ray (FB@JenniferRage), who served as the make-up artist in all of the shots.
The final form of my project consists of one photo of each "Monster", featuring their precious 'totem' object prominently. Please note that the description/legend of the images is an the story/lore part of the project. After the first 10 photos, secondary selections from each photoshoot are included. Finally, all models will remain anonymous since they have mostly abandoned their photo-modelling hobby since then.
