Dana kerr - In Her Wake

  1. 1. [In Her Wake] [Dana Kerr] : [10/10/2010]
  2. 2. <ul><li>This first image sets the direction and feel of the entire series. This image shows a lot of angst at &quot;doing the deed&quot;. This image captures both horror and suspense in a somewhat cinematic approach. There is careful balance in this image as a preview of what is to come in the following images. The cook and her pensive expression lends insight to her lack of remorse. She is concentrated but not fearful. The dead man is both graceful and beautiful in his own way. There are two specific elements that follow in each image; the positioning and purpose of the cooks hands and the triangular formations found in the image. </li></ul>
  3. 3. [In Her Wake] [Dana Kerr] : [10/10/2010]
  4. 4. <ul><li>This image follows the same direction as the previous only this time we really see the emotions on the cook's face. She has a look of disgust in her expression. It makes the watcher question &quot;is she sick about herself or about something else?&quot; She holds the arm to herself in a possessive and dominant manner. The dead look absently discarded in this image making you wonder why the cook has such animosity. The full color element of the bruising is sickening and is supposed to make the onlooker uncomfortable as they watch. This image also follows that same cinematic approach that you find in every image. The triangles and hand positioning is very important here. You can find the triangles behind every corner. </li></ul>

  6. 6. <ul><li>The cook, now at a more vulnerable state shows her full range of emotions at her heinous deeds. I want you to see how she is but another human being with her own set of various issues that cause her to be the way she is. She looks down in shame at the crimes she has committed. She holds herself in a protective position that is nearly fetal. She can not look you in the eye because she is feeling the burden of shame. In this series the acts are not the focal point as much as the variety of emotions felt when a person has to live with themselves and the acts they commit. It is both beautiful and frightening. The red carries over from every image to the next in a new form. In this image the red actually adds a soft element to the picture. Keeping with the red and black theme, even in silks the cook is blunted. The hand positioning here is used differently and shows that vulnerability I was seeking quite well. </li></ul>
  7. 7. [In Her Wake] [Dana Kerr] : [10/10/2010]
  8. 8. <ul><li>The red in this photo is intended to do a couple of things. First off, red is a color that is bold, dense and strong (Freeman, 2007, p.115). It is the color of passion and promotes warning. The hot blooded nature of the cook in this image is framed by red. The blood, being a color of warning by nature also enhances the danger and the intent is better known to the onlooker (Freeman, 2007, p.115). I chose to use color opposed to black and white because the theme I am using is rather warning-hot to begin with. the subject matter is &quot;A woman who fights with herself over her predilection to commit murder&quot;. In this image the cook is looking into your eyes daring you to see what she has done. She is not hiding her crime in this photo at all. In the last photo the murderer fought with herself about her inability to stop and in this image it is clear she has embraced the act and now stands boldfaced at the viewer about her crimes committed. The chiaroscuro in this image is about the high contrast and key which is heightened in this photo to show off the bloody hand prints on the bathroom wall. The key is high and the tone is high in order to provide high levels of excitement. This is all in order to blunt the main character to the viewer. I want the viewer to be aghast at what has been done and captivated by the murderer being caught &quot;red handed&quot;, hence the name. The victim is seemingly delicately placed at the head of the tub and her arm extends out towards the viewer to create depth. </li></ul>
  9. 9. [In Her Wake] [Dana Kerr] : [10/10/2010]
  10. 10. <ul><li>In this final image of the series the cook confronts the viewer face on. She knows what you have seen and she shows little to not remorse in this image. The red follow suit from the rest of the images in the series. Her eyes are captured well by her blunted make-up. Her lips are the color of the blood found in each gruesome image. Her hands still show you what she is feeling. She is fighting with herself. The contrast here is found in the color of her skin and the black and red elements that have been in every part of the series. The cinematic appeal still holds true here to the end. In the end the cooks drive to be deviant has not dwindled. She grips the cushion beneath her in both anger and angst. This is an apt conclusion to a display of madness. </li></ul><ul><li>Made by; </li></ul><ul><li>Dana Kerr </li></ul><ul><li>Models </li></ul><ul><li>Dana Kerr </li></ul><ul><li>Thomas Reges </li></ul><ul><li>Kat Sluka </li></ul>
