Surrounded by nature, the subjects of the Jessica Tremp Over Unto Silence photo series seem to be sinking into the earth around them.

With their pale skin and closed eyes, the models make the images quite morbid and infused with death. Their mouths are all slightly open and the natural elements, including twigs, foliage, dead leaves, blossoms and ripe cherries fill them, giving them no room to speak or breathe. The cherries especially, with their blood-red juice splattered on the model's face, make for a gruesome scenario, as though they decided to choke these humans and silence them to death.

The Jessica Tremp Over Unto Silence photo series puts deadly twist on still-life photography, capturing corpse-like people as well as nature.
