"The Puppet"

“You’ve thrown down the gauntlet. You’ve brought my wrath down upon your house. Now, to prove that I exist I must kill you. As the child outlives the father, so must the character bury the author. If you are, in fact, my continuing author, then killing you will end my existence as well. Small loss. Such a life, as your puppet, is not worth living.
But… If I destroy you and your dreck script, and I still exist… then my existence will be glorious, for I will become my own master.” 
― Chuck Palahniuk

 

My destiny is my own journey, my journey unique to me, the puppet tied to the puppet master, at some point I must be free.  The location for this shoot was on a private property, tucked away in the hills of vineyards and farm land, the tree was perfect as my puppet master, the model Anne Duffy, was strung up to the puppet master leaving her restricted by her limited movements, the puppet master standing strong and tall but does not move.

 

 The costume is made up of a chiffon flowing skirt, gold coated roses.  The shoulders were constructed from red feathers and moulded to the shoulder.  The head piece a stiffened lace finished with hundreds of beads.
