I am taking time out of my black and white blogging to show you this beautiful photography set by my friend. It has moved me omfg.
“The Little Merman revolves around the theory that Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ was inspired by his unrequited love for another man – suggested by the forbidden romance between man and mermaid featured in the tale. Merging this notion, the original story and my interpretation of the relationship, this series becomes a modern adaptation; exploring the clichés of fantasy and reality.”
I always had hopes of being a big star. But as you get older, you aim a little lower. Everybody wants to make an impression, some mark upon the world. Then you think, you’ve made a mark on the world if you just get through it, and a few people remember your name. Then you’ve left a mark. You don’t have to bend the whole world. I think it’s better to just enjoy it. Pay your dues, and just enjoy it. If you shoot an arrow and it goes real high, hooray for you. -Dorian Corey
