This photograph is taken from the website, Skull Photography, and shows the work of artist, David Carradine. Carradine is a photographer, sculptor and painter whose works have been exhibited around the globe. His work is also featured on the cover of the New York Times Magazine.
Skull Photography is one of the most exciting new sites I’ve seen in a long time – it’s the work of a living artist who is creating images that are in perfect harmony with the world around him. Although his work is beautiful, it’s not in the way that most artists are used to – it is more like music.
Skull photography is very much like the photographs of a person who has been turned into a statue by some evil spirit. This is because the artist is looking for the “perfect moment” to complete the work. But unlike a statue, the artist has the power to make a new, perfect copy of himself, and because his work is living, the artist is aware of this and can direct the spirit of the artist.
When skulls are used in art, the artist is aware of the spirit of the art because the artist has the power to actually make the skull. It is the same way when you shoot a photograph of your own face – you are aware of the spirit of the photograph because you have the power to make a new, perfect copy. When you use a skull to make your own portrait, you must also know the spirit of the skull because you have the power to make a new, perfect portrait.
The power of making a new, perfect portrait is what the artist must learn in order to make a new, perfect copy. When you use a skull to make your own portrait, your brain must recognize the spirit of the skull because it’s the only way to make a perfect portrait. This is the reason skulls are such a fascinating subject for art. They are all about the spirit of the object creating a new, perfect copy of the object.
In my own work I have used skulls in my work as well. In fact, I have created my own unique version of this method of making a perfect portrait. In my portrait of a female skull I use a skull to make a new, perfect portrait of her face. The skull has the power to make the face appear to be the image of a perfect female face. This is what I call “skull photography.
I believe it is because of this that I have created so many portraits of skulls, such as this one. It was shot with a Leica M10.
Skull photography is a very old art form that dates back to the 18th century, but there are no standardised rules to it, so some skulls look good in my work and others do not. Skulls look different in each case, so when I am making a portrait, I have to try to get as many images of skulls as possible.
I have shot skulls from many different angles, as each one has its own unique expression, so I can never really get a perfect likeness. When I am looking for skulls that I want to use, I will shoot them in the same pose, in the same pose, in a different pose, and so on. I usually work in a series, so I will shoot skulls in the morning, then move onto a series of skulls.
The result is that my skull portraits turn out better than I expected. But that’s not all they turned out good, they turned out just as good as I imagined, so I have to work on improving my method, because it also works for portraits. If I continue to shoot skulls in the same pose, as I have been, they just look boring.
