The idea to these photos stem out an S/M scene. I find the entire idea and the pictures of my blood on my models bodies .. beautiful. The photos are all discussed with the models before I take them. The blood is real and I discourage anyone to try this themselves. Also, I check the models for open wounds before the shoot, so that there will be no chance of our blood mixing, and I also make sure, that I have been currently testet (negative) for HIV.

 

While these pictures formed in my head, I had the songs: „ Do you love me (part I and II)“ from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds playing in my head. I had an acquaintance assist me during the photos in which I bled. I positioned the camera and told her when to take the photos. I took the rest of them myself, via self-timer.
