Sleep In Sanity by GothicNarcissus Sleep In Sanity by GothicNarcissus
Falling deeper…
Falling deeper…
Falling deeper…
Falling deeper…

Sleep… sleeep…
It is not I who sleeps,
It is you who sleeps, you sleep.
Insane you sleep, I sleep in sanity.


[ Crestfallen & Sleep In Sanity – Anathema ]


This photo is directly inspired by the breathtaking opening tracks of Anathema’s latest release Falling Deeper, Crestfallen and Sleep In Sanity. I really recommend that you listen to both of the songs to get the right feeling behind this photo. It’s a very emotional work to me.
Taken in Alghero, Italy. You can read more about the photoshoot on my blog.

Oh, I most often take inspiration from music, it's a big part of my life and the best way to reflect my own emotions and have a clearer vision of them!

Same here... I hope to get better at incorperating it into my photos though... I definitely need practice setting up shots that convey an emotion without looking forced and unatural...

pure evil:P
i actually imagined something like that. not many people can pull off a shot that looks good with their eyes closed. you look like you are really enjoying yourself, it might even be deeping into the sensual area.
the hands almost look like they are not yours, i can imagine them carries your neck, if you opened your eyes at that point you might have been able to capture lust in your eyes. that would have been a powerful shot, your eyes towards the camera, mouth slightly parted.
my imagination is going wild. its a long way to say i like it :P keep it up :D

Ahah, thank you! XD I wanted to portray the relaxed and slightly longing feeling of the song, it's a strange mixture of sadness and consolation... I don't know how to describe it by words.
