Let My Dreams Cross Over by GothicNarcissus Let My Dreams Cross Over by GothicNarcissus
I let my dreams cross over
To days of endless gray.
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
We’d forge a new unknown.
I let my dreams cross over
To nothingness and back again.
If I could merge the mundane and the magic.
Where is the dark I came to find?


[ The Mundane And The Magic – Dark Tranquillity & Nell Sigland ]


Edited from a photo I did not particularly like overall, but in which I loved how I came out.
Taken in the Railway museum, Trieste.

Probably one of the best photographs in the artist's gallery. The concept is good even if mirroring can't be considered original, however it's the way this is executed that really impresses the viewer and invites him to decode the message.
A suggestive title is a good place to start, it clearly points the whole idea, however without it both models can be easily be labelled as "dark". A great detail is the position of the two model's eyeline because one is looking up (the "magic" from my point of view) and the other forward which might give a hint of their aspirations and which fits perfectly the whole composition. You cannot pass by this work when you find it in your inbox.
On the other hand, the technique can be improved. The green background suddenly stops somewhat confusing the viewer. Another problem is the whiteness of the shirt, it's almost glowing which can be a good idea in any respect.

The mundane and the magic... they are connected, they depends on each other. Beautifully done. One of my favourite favourites by far.
What do you think?

They did two albums, Letters From Fire and Vain City Chronicles. And according to Nell, they're going to do some stuff in the near future. ;)
