“Here, from her ashes you lay. A broken girl so lost in despondency that you know that even if she does find her way out of this labyrinth in hell, that she will never see, feel, taste, or touch life the same again.” Amanda Steele.

“I have long had a theory that the popularity of Christianity has always depended on its appeal to the sadism of its adherents. The exceptional should be crucified, saith Society; and somehow everyone suspects (in spite of all arguments to the contrary) that if there is a God, he may be exceptional in some way. So the figure of Christ crucified becomes the figure of the dangerous exceptional alien — suitably defeated. ‘Only a suffering God can help’, said Bonhoeffer, licking his lips.” Celia Green.
FEMALES (in life & with death) – A new series by Phil Barrington. 2014-2015.
Photographic studies of females from mythical, reimagined historical and contemporary times; strength, resilience, despair, gender and sensuality.
From ancient Greek mythology to the Victorian era, the Golden Age of Hollywood up to contemporary times, “FEMALES (in life & with death)” is a regular series of mixed media mood pieces – many photographs developed through the use of slides and negatives placed over organic textures and liquids.
