During the time this look was shot, I was playing on the idea of beauty behind a veil. The vintage metallic grey shirt shimmers subtlely under the sheer guise of a chiffon jacket. Same goes with my obscured face by the veil. I was told this look was quite disturbing because my photographer couldnt see my face when shot. It was almost jet black. It was an exercise on surface beauty versus hidden beauty and how they are exuded.
As I post this look I came across a video shared by my good friend Jehser of a Danish artist named Burhan who sang this beautiful ballad with two other guys Nik and Jay
youtube.com/watch?v=pArLmSakOYI

Well fantastic topless bodies aside there is this scene where Burhan was singing to a wall in black undulating almost like liquid but hides hands and faces on the other side (see 4:03 of the video). It is surreal, dark and haunting. this wall hiding the object projecting itself out of the wall reminds me of my look.

And as I was typing this look i noticed that my portrait here resembles like a skull. Quite interesting. An object can be reinterpreted by simply obscuring it partially by another material like a veil.

In life I realized lies can mask the truth. As such we see a different reality. Compared to concealing beauty I think concealing truth is more haunting.
