This is a series of Gothic inspired pieces. The men (and woman) in these photographs were intended to be vampires, I believe. I love to see a familiar icon (Bela Lugosi's Dracula, for instance) re-imagined.

These gentlemen are perfectly designed to appeal to both men and women. They are strong, seductive and strange...just the kinds of men to whom women are most attracted.

On the other side of the coin...(or the same side of another coin), they could be willowy, waif-ish and submissive, appealing to gay men and/or open minded straight men. Obviously this is most beneficial to a vampire, because they double their options for a satisfying dinner.

'Silver Blood'

'Back in Black'

'Goth Home and Country'

'Midnight Hour'

'Bela Lugosi's Dead'

'Inspired by the Fallen Nun'
I included this set because this was the first set I did AFTER the Gothic vampires and I was still in a 'bloody' state of mind. I used the blood spot on white sheets as an analogy to a fallen nun. The outfit is meant to be a little unsettling (hence the chartreuse pumps) and reflect the confusion, sadness, terrifying freedom and bloom of lust upon casting off old restraints.
