Born to Die
"Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime
Come on take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words, this is the last time
Cause you and I, we were born to die"
On listening to some songs by Lana Del Rey, I decided to relax after studying all day long and do some self portraits. I did a headband with flowers and looked for a white rose, painted it red inside, got my make up her and started shooting.
The results were far more outstanding that I thought it would be, especially when I started shooting in black and white. It is I believe my best self portraits to date. It really is more emotive than usual, with some haunting feeling about it.
