So, lately I've been in a ~photography~ kind of mood-- and I've feeling inspired by Ryan Hancock and this Tavi post. When I was writing down stuff that describes this inspiration/feeling/look that's been goin' on, I put down "candid scary youth vibes", which pretty much explains it all. There's that very candid photographic look I was going for, like the weirdness of everyday life mixed with the kind of scary, decaying, angsty youth that permeates movies and teenage emotions alike, mixed with a bit of Virgin Suicides-esque '70s wood panel nostalgic drama and bright pops of color.
One of the best examples of this kind of feeling is the David Lynch-y, Twin Peaks vibes I was talking about in my last post. Everything looks wholesome and wonderful at first glance, but you can feel something is not right. Underneath this pretty surface is a seedy, decaying underworld. I've been trying to capture this in the pictures I've been taking, and here are the results!
