Hi Guys, here's the first in my new series of digital photo collages "The Machine Makers". What do you think?

Mod edit: interesting, but since it contains nudity I had to remove it. :(
However, I will not close the thread and trust that the following collages will be compliant with our rules (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=181343).

You could just upload it with black bars or green leaves hiding things.:o

However if it's a collage and there are a lot of them...well it may be a lot of black bars.:/

The way to understand this series...is to let your mind read the words...and your body (your emotions) feel about the pictures. There is no answer...it is a contemplation to make you think about the relationship of the objects (in this case..... - word - gun - egg). These are absolute concepts. The gun is IRON...from the rock from which it is made to the dehumanized industrial society that created the atomic bomb. The egg is the fragility of life on earth in the face of this juggernaut. Voices is our conscience...our judgements...and because we can't see the faces...these voices are of neccesity the ones in our head. If you listen carefully you will hear what they are saying. Oh, and whose finger is on the trigger? Yours, every time you shout at someone, or judge someone.

Ooo Santana. I love that song <3
Anyway my thoughts on the picture are as follows:

~ I love the soft skin of the woman and the sharpness of the safety pin -- they contrast well.
~ Her nakedness also links to the doll/baby -- femininity/motherly instincts and such -- protection, but the sharp ripped edges of the photos/safety pins contrasts with that.
~The photo is very tastefully ripped :p
~The inclusion of the wine bottle gives the photo a mysterious edge.

Well done! Its an amazing and very emotional piece. xxxx

What about this
Between the wine bottles the woman weeps as the parasite inside her slowly decends, the woman weeps as the parasite leaves her body.
