I was first drawn to this picture because it's green (favourite color) and also it was different from all the soft porn I was seeing. That aside.
I adore the tone and lighting of this shot; the ambience draws me in and makes me wish I was there, the peeling of the walls makes me want to pick at them, and as the title suggests, it would bring back memories.
My only issue is the model. While others think she fits, I think she looks out of place. If she were, perhaps, sitting at the desk as if writing her memoirs in a large book, crouched against the far wall in angst with her hands holding her head, it may convey a stronger emotion through such a fine photo.
I personally ADORE defunct buildings, so much inspiration from a place where someone used to live or exist. This is probably one of the best I've seen.
P.S. I would actually think she'd look better on the other image sitting on the chair.
those colors - that great amazing old abandoned room - really beautiful Would have been great if the model were sitting on the chair at the desk instead of swinging around her arms, this would have added more atmosphere. Anyway it`s a nice shot.
Those greens are so vibrant, so spectacular! I love scenes in run down buildings.. peeled paint, cracked cement, splintered wood, it all hints at meaning.
I see a girl, dressed in gray, dingy colors, her arms outstretched as if she was making the room look so green, so lively. As if she moved or stood out of the light, the room wouldn't be green anymore, it would be ugly. She is making the ugly beautiful.
Associating the title with the photograph, this is what comes to my mind first:
the woman is in the old bedroom where she stayed for the most of her childhood. As she remembers the calm memories(which is perfectly sembolized by the green color) she streches as if she wakes up to one of her long-gone childhood mornings
Did you make any interpretation before/after shooting this? if so, I'm willing to hear. best wishes.
I do really enjoy this picture It is amazing, I think I like the picture of the room that doesn't have the girl in it, best, though.
They are very different photos though, and I do think without the model this picture would be lacking something, though I can't really say I like the models pose just my opinion, not really sure if it has any deep meaning that I'm not getting or if it was just a random thing. Over all great picture! I love it
