The Souls of Lovers: Jessica K Photography: Self-Portrait Emotive Portraits

"The Souls of Lovers"

I am the mistress of romance, the martyr for passion. A fragile human who’s thoughts consume every inch of my body when there is only silence present. Dancing in the ruins of broken hearts, I am empathetic to the damaged souls that dwell in their dreams and ignore the wake of reality. They are swallowed whole by their expectations, for they relentlessly search for impossible perfection.

(Listen to this while reading and scrolling through the images)


NAME: Legal name remains un-obtained, goes by the name CLOTY.
MOTIVE: Research has lead us to believe that the nature of 

“CLOTY’S’ killings were revenge attacks against beautiful children due to emotional damage in his early years. Jealousy based attacks suggest that he grew up as an outsider.

D.O.B: Unknown, but suspect seems about 40 years old.

LOCATION/METHODS: Victims have been found in abandoned hospitals with balloons tied to their wrist, rose thorn marks to their neck, teeth ripped out, parts of face peeled off and with their faces painted to mimic clown make-up. There is no sign of surgical brilliance and the scene is often left un-tidy, suggesting that this is not an act of precision but one acted upon emotionally.

LAST SEEN: Just outside of Brisbane Australia, October 2015.

Happy Halloween.

Silence Is Violent: Jessica K Photography

I was going to write poetry, or something for this but my mind is so scattered right now all I can write is honest thoughts...
These images were a result of manic inspiration, tonight was spent dancing under streetlights to music on my phone to distract myself from my mind.
I feel like a lot of my time lately has purely been distraction, trying not to let these thoughts get the better of me, trying to keep it together. The truth is i'm tired, this is absolutely exhausting and I just want this all to stop already.

I feel like a burden to everyone, I feel annoying, I feel crazy, I feel like i'm selfish. Silence is filled with violent thoughts and I have a guilty heart purely for being present.

Numb: Jessica K Photography x Taylah Kereama

I felt the chill slowly seep into every bone, so cold that everything becomes numb...vibrant yet pale...peaceful. My body came to embrace the icy vastness surrounding me, being suffocated in beauty, a beauty so immeasurable it is forever frozen into my memories. Even with the heart beat slowing and sensation leaving, I became enthralled and encapsulated in the moment that I will eternally yearn for.
