adonis and the narcism by NikolasBrummer adonis and the narcism by NikolasBrummer
in my arms, there is that body. warm, beautiful to touch, soft skin and the most beautiful eyes. it's the picture of perfection, and nothing in this world would ever matter more to me than this beautiful soul right in front of me.
because after all, what I hold and see right here in front of me, that is myself. and this is all I will ever truly love.

There's just so much going on in this photograph. I've been sitting here for 5 minutes trying to figure out what to say about it. The emotion, the bright light in the mirror, the way your body position almost tells it's own story I just keep staring at the picture!! Gah!

I am always amazed by self portraits, because it is like showing your true-self. People love to manipulate the truth, so it`s stunning to see sincere photography. If I were doing such portrait, I would have big emotional connection to it (even more as I have to my pieces of writing - because, seriously, I`m obsessed with it) and for me, putting such pictures into dev where everybody can throw a stone at you without thinking is act of brave or being very confident f yourself.

Well, so to say, this is a part of a project I am working on. It's about, to sum it up rather simply, the human mind and the negativity and also positivism of it. And I believe since it is my project, and also because there is going to be a lot of self-portraits involved, it's representing and reflecting a lot of what is going on inside of me. Not constantly. Just what kind of feelings or thoughts my mind produces from time to time, or even for a longer period of time. As for this picture, I am pleased by the fact you realized how much thinking it took me to actually post this photo. I want to be honest, and I want to be real; I don't want to create an illusion of myself and have people admire or hate that. If they admire or hate something about me, I want it to be at least the truth. And I want to feel honest. Now it's up to everyone to judge if this was an act of bravery, high self-confidence or simply because I just didn't think about its impact at all.

Thank you for your words. I enjoy it when people think farther than what is actually there.

Sehr schöne Idee und Umsetzung!
Die Bildsprache ist klar und verständlich. Ich hab auch ohne den Titel zu lesen sofort an Narziss denken müssen.
Auch die Farben erzielen ihre Wirkung. Vor allem der Hauch von Gold am Rahmen und auch das Backlight im "Spiegelbild".
Einzig die lila Wildblumen im Hintergrund lenken ein kleines bisschen ab. Ich könne es mir gut vorstellen, wenn die einzigen Rottöne im Bild, die der Haut wären. Das nur als kleine Anregung. :)

Ich mag deinen Ansatz, da ist was Wahres dran. Ich werde beim nächsten mal ein wenig auf solch kleine Details achten. :aww: Bis dahin, vielen Dank für diesen Kommentar. Es freut mich, dass es anscheinend so eindeutig ist. Ich hatte Angst, dass es eher wehmütig oder sogar angenehm wirkt, wobei es doch schlicht und ergreifend eher etwas seltsames ist, dieser Narzissmus.

Freut mich, wenn ich ein wenig hilfreich sein kann. c:

Es hat jeder nen anderen Zugang zum Thema darum wird's jeder auch ein wenig anders sehen, darum find ich's immer spannend, was die Leute in ein Bild/Foto hinein interpretieren, auch wenn's vielleicht gar nicht das ist, was der Macher eigentlich darstellen wollte.
Aber natürlich ist's für den Künstler am befriedigendsten, wenn's "richtig", also so wie's ursprünglich gemeint war, ankommt. Und das ist meiner Meinung nach hier gelungen. :D

Doryphoros! Kennst du dieses Werk von Polyklet? Wenn du dich mit Schönheit beschäftigst vielleicht... Es war Kanon der Schönheit... Und das ist was ich hier sehe!
Danke, dass ich das hier sehen durfte. Es ist eine große Inspiration und das bestimmt nicht nur für mich.

Oh, nein, das kannte ich noch gar nicht. Größenteils hatte ich mich mit dem Mythos von Adonis und Narzis beschäftigt, aber das werde ich mir auch nochmal angucken. :aww: Vielen Dank! Soetwas hört man gerne!
