  1. Creepy, but the color is beautiful.

  2. Creepy, but holds me entranced for ages. Colour and texture are wonderful – the texture almost lunar. The choice of presentation of this was critical as I guess more straight on would have lessened its impact and creepiness.

  3. There was a strong impact on opening this that hasn’t diminished. This is a fascinating mix of ephemera, natural materials and human hand. It is like a cross between montage and collage: there is an image of a person as if doing backstroke in the sand sea surrounded by random marks made on land.

    After a while I wondered whether this was the best angle and framing and played with it. The result of that is fascinating in that one can turn or crop it ‘any which way’ and it assumes a different character that is equally appealing.

    Of course, the wonder of it is that it is now preserved as a strange photographic artefact.

  4. Spooky fun and the light helps with the 3D and the texture.

  5. Scary.

    I don’t get any ‘fun’ element from this – just a shiver.

  6. I get a big dose of Tim Burton from this. Feels like a still from a sequence where the figure is going to prop themselves up and walk away, maybe blink a few times, then grin.

  7. I’m now thinking I should have held onto this one until the end of October and brought it out for Halloween.

  8. The hollow eyes spook me out. Makes it hard to think on the paradox of the impermanent made permanent.

  9. What a perfect Halloween photo. It certainly does have a Tim Burton feel and “creepy” works for me. I’m glad you saw it.
