This photo has an amazing impact on the veiwer. It's strong, and compelling. Enchanting in a way. I absolutely love the overall appearance. I enjoy the fact that the hands all look extremely similar. Normally, hands are something that are unique to a person; it may look strange if these hands looked to different. I also like the appearance of the chipped nail polish. It gives a rugged, rough feeling to the photo, that may be associated with the "evil" in the see no, hear no, speak no. It appears that the model is wearing some sort of mask? that's a very effective touch in my opinion; it gives mystery and anonymity to the photo. Its cool in a way that we all in some way, hear, see, or speak evil.. but perhaps we don't want it to be known. So the mystery to this photo is very fitting. I really have no complaints besides I wish it was perhaps a little sharper. But I realize every artist edits photos or doesn't edit photos to their own liking Regardless this is a gorgeous and very unique photo!
First of, the three hands caught my attention immediately. Then I looked a little closer, and realized there are actually 5 all together. The fact that that they all appear to belong to the same person really makes this intriguing. Black and white was probably a good choice. However, It seems a little too contrasty to me. The contrast adds to the image, but it might have been better to get some detail in the hair, and some of the other shadows. Not a big deal though.
All in all, it;s a great image, the hands, the mask, and that darrrk hair really add to a pretty strong mood in the image. Out of curiosity, did you use multiple exposures for this?
Mmm personally I find this picture interesting because of what is being censored. She is wearing a mask and is featureless because of the hands. It renders the impression that she has no individuality or control.
Everyone will have a different interpretation of this, mine is that this represents someone who is being kept ignorant for the sake of keeping them in a submissive or dependant state, as if they will easily accept someone else's judgement on what is right or wrong.
Evil is a part of the world, and to be alive you must face it! This kinda feels as if the subject is literally 'turning a blind eye' towards the realities of life
Wow this is a really powerful picture. This is only what i got from it and i'm not sure you intended this but it seems the girl in the mask is a victim of society. Her face is in a mask because she cannot take to see it everyday even though she is probably beautiful but society made her feel ugly. She couldn't take their taunts anymore so her ears are covered. Again her eyes are covered because she hates seeing herself. Her mouth covered because she can't say anything to make it stop. Anyway this is just what i got from it only my interpretation. I think this picture is extremely powerful and moving.
I'm not good at critiquing artworks but I really love the originality of this piece. I also like the concept that people try to put on a mask on the main character. It's like what people who own the entertainment industries do - force the models / actors / actresses to put on a facade and be what they don't really wanna be.
I love the calmness of this piece. Life is considered a constant battle between good and evil, and this character tries to block the evil out of his/her life and therefore doesn't actually experience life.
+ I love it when people use something old (See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil isn't exactly new ) and give it a modern twist! To my idea you succeeded exceptionally well! I love that the hands all appear to be from the same person, and you really make it seem like this person is completely 'in the dark' - Only after a second look I realized that the face is actually a mask. It isn't really that I dislike it, but for me it makes the face less 'human'. However, I think that you chose to do this (the mask) on purpose, so it is just a personal note! I still love it
This reminds me of Marilyn Manson, that is the first thing that comes to my mind when looking at it. And Manson is like one of the most photogenic individuals I've ever seen so I'm thinking that is a good thing.
