Your are your plans to shoot this and tell the narrative over your 10 photo portfolio?
- Pandora’s Box (myth): I’m hoping to shoot a female model as Pandora the first woman created by the Gods in Greek mythology. Pandora was created to be the wife of Epimetheus, after his brother Prometheus gave the gift of fire to man. Pandora was the holder of a box that was said to carry all the world’s evils (illness, violence, hate, envy, etc). The legend says that her curiousity led her to open the box leaving only hope inside. I want to capture my subject carrying around a box, she’s trying her best to protect the box but she’s also very curious about it. She holds it up and looks at it in the sun, she gets distracted for a few moments and the box falls out of her hand. All the evils are released into the world (represented by colored powder), leaving pandora distraught. She’s left only with hope and she seals it back inside the box.
Ring Around the Rosie (Dark nursery rhyme): i want to do this shoot in black and white, beginning with the focus on white flowers being held by female subject. She walks holding the flowers and a male subject is seen over her shoulder blurred in the background. As he gets closer he’s wearing a mask with a bird’s beak. She begins picking the petals off the flower dropping them on the ground. She seems to be hiding from the masked man, eventually he finds her. Female subject walks off with the masked man, leaving a now dead flower only the stem and the last few petals around it.
