While not graphic or violent in any way, these unsettling portraits still manage to evoke a sense of melancholy in the viewer.

The portraits feature models of both genders in unusual and occasionally uncomfortable positions. While one picture shows a woman who is partially under the water, the rest follow the same theme. The portraits of men and a woman feature pink, purple or red hued candle-like objects in the shape of roses. The waxy roses all appear to be melting and are photographed while they slowly drip down the subjects' faces, shoulders, heads, arms and backs.

These unsettling portraits are beautiful and were created in an attempt be visual representations of the human psyche.
