Carved is something I had been working on little by little for about two years with my friend and frequent collaborator, Holly.
Initially conceived as simply a faux movie one sheet in 2012, it was after some thought and discussion that the decision was made to expand on the concept when I created the mask you see here to wear as a simple Halloween costume last year. The original plan was initially to film a short fake trailer, when I realized that I didn’t have access to the necessary equipment to do things the right way. The next plan was to tell a story sequentially in photos and have them posted on a separate site created especially for the project. Unfortunately, due to scheduling circumstances beyond Holly’s or myself’s control, we ran out of time to complete the necessary photography. However, that is not to say we didn’t get to create some images that were cool on their own.
