Costumes

I uploaded some images of the costumes that are usually used during my photoshoots. Some of these were made by me, the other ones were purchased in vintage/second hand shops, or ebay/allegro, and reconstructed. I don't think I have ever spent more than 50$ for an outfit, but I love digging and finding little 'jewels', or designing them from the very beginning.More to go around January.

The View From Here...

...is the view to Nonsuch Park. Well,not really,but I live quite close to it, staying here in Sutton (UK ). I haven't posted anything in a while but as I feel it's quite high time to start to think about coming back to regular photography, I though maybe it's a good way to start it all again this way. I'll try to post a couple of recent publications and some re-discovered works, as well as some thoughts on my trip to England. A lot of plans have already been made and some hopes have already been sown.

Frightnight

"Frightnight" is one of my all-time-fav movies and I've been actually thinking of taking some photographs more or less inspired by this film & series. Well, I still haven't done it but one of the images from a shoot with Caradelneil made me think of this theme and I couldn't help but name the image "Frightnight". There seems to be a real vampiric "revival" and I don't really mean this poor "Twilight" saga ( I've seen it and I'd rather forget...). So, I keep searching through my own movie archives and have already re-watched two parts of "Frightnight", "Vamp" with fabulous Grace Jones, "Vampire's Kiss", "The Hunger" & "Near Dark" and I can't wait to see "The Lost Boys" as soon as I get it on a dvd. yes, it's just the 80's keep trendy and for me it's all about all these creepy movie stories. Besides there's nothing more sensual than a bite in the neck, accompanied by the sounds of any hit by Classix Nouveaux, heh...

The Quiet Ones...

Memories always come uninvited. His smiling eyes, shy subtle touch...her shaking voice, the rustle of leaves, and sound of the rain. The dearest January, the saddest December. The castle walls, bells of another land and so on...and so on. You'd now die for less.......................................................................
I can't share any new images, it's not a good time for creativity but it's a perfect time for slackening the pace a little bit. I keep exploring the archives and diving into images and forgotten stories. England is beautiful, but it is never about the place...

Sentinel


If you are in UK and have any opportunity to visit Hampton Court Palace, please do so. Hampton Court Palace is a royal palace in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames in south west London. It was originally built for Cardinal Wolsey (a favourite of King Henry VIII). In 1529, as Wolsey fell from favour, the palace was passed to the King. More info here: http://www.hrp.org.uk/hamptoncourtpalace/ , and I will try to post more images soon too.

Pete

According to KNAC,Peter Steele,the legendary frontman of one of my "all time fav" bands, Type O Negative, died at the age of 48...I wish that was a cruel joke, instead of which it appears a cruel fact. Damn, I'm gonna miss this voice, noone can really replace him...

Phantasms- A Group Show in Paris


A short note for those of you who might be interested in a vernissage that is to take place on the 18th of March in Paris, France. Some of my works will be exhibited among a bunch of creations of very talented artists (a detailed list is posted below), under the theme "Phantasms" which is a strong mixture of sensuality and symbolism; dreams and reality. For more info please visit this site http://www.cabinetcurieux.com/ - it is the official site of an extraordinary Parisian gallery called Le Cabinet Des Curieux.
p.s. I can see that the site is undergoing slight maintenance works
but it should be back online soon...

Trust,2009

model: Natalia http://www.natalialoch.com/ . She is a fashion model but it was a pure, pure pleasure to shoot with her. Many people suggest some similarity between Nela and Lisa Gerrard, which was a huge shock to me. I adore Lisa and her musical maestry and I was impressed by Nela's features, but only when i was suggested this similarity I noticed it, and yes!

And here are some previously published works with her:

Love, eternal...




These images come from 2009, my lovely model was Joanna, a talented dancer and a cheerful person- sometimes it appears so striking when one comes to conclusion that these somewhat disturbing , otherworldly features stand out in opposition to someone's energetic personality. But I love it, even more as I realize that some stories get another meaning, and this is exciting...I'm packing my things and thinking of my trip to UK. In a little while I'll start a little search for souls that would like to cooperate with me and pose. Or maybe you'd like to share some knowledge of haunting and one-of-a-kind places that I definitely should visit in UK... if so, please let me know at mmajart@gmail.com

Thank You

Thank you for all your recent comments, emails and other messages. There are so many that I finally realized how long I've already been "offline" and find it difficult to respond personally- but I've read all your notes and I appreciate them really much, thank you.
As for my recent post- some of the prints are still available, while I've sold a couple of other ones (not necessarily mentioned here) . So, to make things clear- there's now an option of purchasing prints that can be found in my online portfolio, not only here. However, as I am planning a longer leave abroad (around the end of March), please be aware of the fact that after the 2nd week of March I won't be able to offer any prints, organize shipping etc., so the so called "sale" won't last long. I only sell signed and limited prints so the number of copies of each image is also very limited... And I...am already looking forward to seeing some Pre-Raphaelite paintings "live", meeting some of my best friends, enjoying the charm of Victorian architecture, and spending some time for myself in a different climate... what comes out of this- time will show. I think I am very curious and a bit afraid. Oh well. Be well.



2009, fot.M. One of my favourite places.
