I usually like to post content here that you don't have to go look elsewhere. But today it would be worth the trip over to my blog to read the full post on this new series I am doing. Fears. Link on profile.
I wanted to approach fear a little different. I wanted to tap into what non photography/personal fears there are in the world and then create based on that. This is going to be an ongoing series for me as I explore this concept more. And with many fears in the world, I have lots of subject matter to explore :) I do not plan to explore fears of anxiety or self doubt or other very personal fears. I want these images to be relatable to a wider audience, and they will cover what everyone knows as a fear. I want the viewer of this series to already understand the concept and appreciate the images without having to personally have that fear themselves.
So first in my Phobia Series is:
Or otherwise known as:
Taphophobia is the irrational fear of being buried alive. It is closely related to other phobias such as: fear of death (Thanatophobia), fear of tombstones (Placophobia), and fear of tight and enclosed spaces (Claustrophobia*). This first photo is the main image for this phobia. It's a woman in a glass coffin with dirt being thrown on top of her. In this image she fully knows what is happening and so does whoever is doing this to her. It's pretty scary to think about as it was no accident. It's being done purposefully and she knows there is no good outcome.
You can read about all three photos, my thoughts about them and more on my blog. Link in my profile.
"So we're in Hatun Machay, means big cave in Quechua, here's the cave, and it's pretty hatun" 💛 El bosque de piedras de Hatun Machay (gran cueva en Quechua) es impresionante, bello, místico, misterioso. Y no conocimos ni el 1%. Tenemos que ir otra vez.

"The motions of her mind were as incalculable as the flit of a bird in the branches. The fact that he had no right to show his feelings, and thus provoke the expression of hers, made him attach a fantastic importance to every change in her look and tone. Now he thought she understood him, and feared; now he was sure she did not, and despaired."
