RAN – The Sea Goddess

This is a model job I did for a photographer called Holger E. A project he is putting together for a calendar for heathen and viking interested folks. Pictures were taken in Marstrand outside of Gothenburg. It’s a beautiful archipelago, close to the mainland, a lot of rocks and the powerfull sea around it. Perfect spot for Ran.

In norse mythology, Ran is a sea goddess. She has a net in which she tried to capture men who ventured out to sea. She was often depict with long, black hair and dressed in a fish net.

So the fantastic invoiroment is real but graphic designer Mattias made the colors more dramatic. Further down you can see some pics without the editing.

    Absolutely love the sea goddess…so much I think I am going to steal the idea and be that for Halloween this year…Too Cool….but instead of the ivy(looks like), I will do seaweed. ;) Do you have any pics you can email to my inbox of this one?


  2. These are positively stunning. Is it all right to use one of these pics on a WordPress post I am writing about my own experiences with Ran? I will link back here and attribute to you, of course.

    I’d love to see more work along these lines. :) Ever thought of doing Her daughters next?
