Blind Lucidity

This morning I woke up with a stiff neck. I hurts when I look to the left. I hope it goes away by tomorrow because I have a goth photo session to make outside a castle. If worse comes to worst, I will have to look in one direction only and that narrows down the poses a little. Also I am going to an AC/DC concert tomorrow. Can you even imagine going to an AC/DC concert with a stiff neck? That will be tough : (

Today Matt also finished the last graphic work on the pictures that I did with Boel L in Småland in May. Photographer is Jörgen Lundh.

Okidoki… that was all for today. I will be back with a review on the AC/ DC concert of course.

Ta-ta for now

THE MILLENIUM OAK

Tallee old doll 1

I got the idea for this session after I found this old doll in an estate sale in the U.S.A last year. An old lady had passed away and now her relatives sold most of her belongings. There were so many beautiful old and antique items there and I couldn’t understand why the relatives did not take any interest in them. I saw this doll there and instantly knew I wanted it. I have never played with dolls really. I think they are actually quite creepy when they stare at you with that “dead” look. But it intrigued me that this doll has a history and that it has been through so much.

Deep in the forest in the southern part of Sweden, in Småland, a thousand-year oak is growing. It is called the Oak of Kvill (Kvilleken). The whole ancient  forest is well-preserved and something very unique. Today it is protected as a cultural landscape. This magnificent tree has a circumference of 14 meters (45,9 ft) and is the biggest in Europe. Estimated age: 850 to 1000 years. Beautiful crown and a perfect place to take some mystique photos. Kind of exciting to think that vikings probably had  battles here when this tree was only a small plant, a thousand years ago.

We took this pictures 1 of May and it was very cold outside. I literally froze my ass of. I am glad the photos wheren’t suppose to be happy smiling pictures. Because my teeth and body was shivering. Who says the life of a “model” is glamorous? Ha ha ha. Photographer Göran Magnusson had to be very patience with the schizophrenic light, shifting from dark shadow to bright sunlight. Matt did an excellent job with the editing, to get the exact horror feeling I wanted.

My job was more or less to look like a little spoiled brat playing alone under the ancient oak, while communicating with the dead.

Svarta Madame

Posted in Model 40 with tags , , , , , , on August 28, 2009 by Tallee Savage

This is the second Småland meeting where Matt and I participated. Organized by Boel and her husband Jörgen Lundh. Here we have models, photographers, stylists, make up artists and graphic designers getting together for a few days to exchange experiences and knowledge. Lots of hard work and most of all a very pleasant time among people with the same interest.

I did this session with photographer Göran Magnusson outside this fantastic old barn. My sister Amanda Martinez did not join us, but she put together this perfect outfit for me from Independent Kostym. Sarah Maria did my hair. I found the crow at a swap-meet in Huntington Beach. It has av very genuine appearance.

Scrolling down you will find some behind the scenes photos.
