WK 1: Landscape with a Corpse

Woody Allen famously said, “I’m not afraid to die, I just don’t want to be there when it happens”, and for so many this couldn’t be anymore relatable. Death is a very justifiable fear, for no one truly knows what happens to us. Most people hope for an idealistic death, passing away in their sleep after living a long and eventful life but as we all know this isn’t always the case. For this assignment I decided to go against dying a cliche, peaceful death and went the more dramatic and gruesome route and told the story of a beaten and abandoned body left alone in the elements. Although it was near impossible to keep a straight face while being stuffed in a suitcase with a friend in a tree looking down on me, I was pleased with the shots I got and definitely gained respect for Izima Kaoru and his creative process.
