Yea, you knew it before! This blog is all about violence and nudity …. virtual and not real ones of course! So what comes more close than introducing some great artists who’s hobby is to shoot authentic looking photography of suicide or murder?! Does this sound too macabre? There are two of them on deviantart.com who caught my attention to visit them back every some weeks …
The so called Dead Series from Jenni Tapanila, a photographer from Finland deals with a row of under all circumstances real looking suicide pictures, on some of them Jenni acting by herself, on others she has her protagonists playing dead.
While the earlier ones in the series have their very own ‘aesthetics of death’ with deep red (fake) blood running out of the mouth, the later ones are a touch too violent and too direct for my taste. But decide for yourself! You’ll find them at http://suzi9mm.deviantart.com/.
Damien Hirst’s Killer’s Hobby Room is more like the scenario of a psycho killer, showing a nude blonde rolling in a tub covered with deep red pig blood. He describes his works simply with “real blood, real girl, real nude!” and can be proud of it, isn’t it easy to find a good actress for such kind of photo shooting eventually.
Though it all seems very macabre, the photos all stay in their own unique style and the blonde models face is never shown (unfortunately?) so she stays anonymous. You can find Damien’s stuff at http://damienhirst12.deviantart.com/. What a bloodfest!
