BVAMPII VI

This is a serie of digitized photographs portraying human-vampires in stillness, resembling a classic modelling pose for portrait painting. Historically, the aim of portraits were primarily memorialized the rich and powerful, capturing the beauty and youth of a moment that cannot be returned back. Portraits wish for eternity, in an attempt to stop time, ageing, and the natural course of dying. Vampires never age. They live forever as long as they reclute in darkness. These portraits paradoxically refer to the nostalgy of eternity and the frightening desire of an end, death. Even the pose is determined to be the same for each subject, the trapped soul reveals itself through sutil gestures, the chest, hairs, shoulders, hands and sight.
