the haunted girl

First of all, if you want to know about the inspiration behind these photos, click and play the songs I linked above, I think it's very important. Music moves me in a special way, it inspires me and I can almost visualize it, and in this particular case it helped me a lot in explaining my vision to my model. It also helped us relax and get into the right mood.

I've listened to Bat For Lashes for years, but only after her last album was released did I decide to get to know more about her and get deeper into the lyrics. I also got to know myself better through her songs, especially "Lilies". That's when the ideas for the photoshoot started pouring in.

...she sings:
"And so I finished up my prayer, rose slowly and I stared
But I was empty as a grave and ghostless was the air
Laid back to bed and dulled my eyes and searched those fruitless skies
Again begged the thunder bolt to strike to mark me or else I will die
And in the second before I sleep
Did I believe what I did see?
Did I believe what came to me?

Appeared a figure of a man
Waving upon the hill
To the window I ran
And saw what he had sent
Children of a private world
To be conceived in milk
Hundred marching to my door
All bringing dreams to drink

Thank God I'm alive!
Thank God I'm alive!"

I will not tell you about the story behind these photos, I believe that's something you should come up with on your own. And you'll see your own self reflected in them. Maybe you'll be inspired. Maybe none of that will happen. Either way, I'd like to hear your thoughts, it would mean the world to me!
