This photo inspires me. this is because demonstrates that the simplest of ideas and thoughts can turn out different and be really effective. The wrapping of gauze around the models adds texture, it gives the photograph new possibilities for another interpretation. To me it tells two stories, it looks like a Mummy is gasping for air as it comes back to life. Or a person gasping for air as they emerge from a cocoon
I also find that this photo is inspiring because you don’t have to travel round the world to find the perfect photo and model. it also shows that you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment and the use of an imaginative and creative mind is also just as important. The art of story telling with an image.
