DescriptionThe Emotional Drowning is an image taken from photographic artist, Jaeda DeWalts, Floral Fatalities series. Image photographed with a digital camera, held out at arms length, overhead.
ABOUT THIS IMAGE:Image was inspired by a beautiful bouquet of flowers i received, yesterday. Along with the autumn inspired bouquet was an exquisite array of Godiva chocolates. I wanted to celebrate that romantic moment, by capturing it in photographic form. I had an excruciating migraine when i shot this series. I found it impossible to remove the agony from my face. Most of the images in this series have a bit of tension to them, even though my intial intent was do something timeless, dreamy and romantic.
I am deeply intuitive and empathetic, i cant help but key into the emotive atmospheres of others. My inability to safeguard myself from the emotions of others, often leaves me feeling as if i am emotionally drowning. There are no natural barriers around me, no boundaries, no walls i suppose they were torn down in my early childhood.
The series title, Floral Fatalities came about when i was unwrapping my bouquet from the box and carefully removing the petals that were bruised in transit. I hated to waste them, so i kept them and photographed them. You will see a lot of them, later in this series. The fabric i am draped in, came from the packaging contained in the box the flowers were wrapped in
Special thanks to the person that inspired this spontaneous creation and series :).HOW THIS IMAGE WAS CREATED:I carefully covered myself with the iridescent sheer fabric, tossed some fresh rose petals on top and carefully reach for the camera with my right arm, held it overhead and photographed this self-portrait.
It is so rare that a surreal image comes straight from my camera. I got so lucky with this one. I cropped it, did a color and level correct and thats it! It was ready to post :).
About Me: I am a self-taught photographic artist. My art explores my internal landscapes, like... survivor issues, spirituality and sensuality. Much of my work is comprised of self-portraits. My intent with my creations is to be one of the connecting threads in the universal fabric we share. A detailed biography and resume can be viewed here: https://www.behance.net/jaedadewalt/resume
