Brooke Shaden

Seeing Halloween is around the corner I thought to post something a little darker then my usual. These are photos made to look like paintings, revers of Nigel Cox who is a realist painter. Where Nigel is brilliant technically I struggle to find any depth in is artwork. Brooke in contrast has very rich subject matter and each photo is a story onto its own, however a touch of elusiveness keeps you guessing.

A quite death, Her burial and The aftermath (as seen below) reminded me a little of the pre-Raphael paintings: Ophelia by Sir John Everett and The Lady of Shalott by Hughes, Arthur – Perhaps she got some of her inspiration from those?
