I'm inspired by the dead.
Nothing fascinates people more that normality slightly skewed. I have made it my life's goal to capture all of the world's abnormalities.
I hate Instagram.
Ask me any questions you like...I'm always open to critique. :)

The start of the shoulder-back-piece tattoo I am creating to honor my Mother’s passing last Tuesday.
She was a beautiful creature, caged by her suffering.
Love and mercy released her from her cage and now she can be free.

There’s a creepy story that goes along with this particular photo.
These shots were taken at a little place called Amy’s Cage near South Weber, UT. Local legend says that this house belonged to a man who stole a young girl named Amy from her home and kept her locked up in a tiny cage somewhere inside the house. Amy suffered years of physical, sexual and emotional abuse at the hands of her captor before finally giving it. She died in the house, and her ghost is said to haunt it still.
The house itself seemed unimposing…quiet; beautiful, if not small, with a pretty yellow colored paint job and a run down roof. The model of this photo had a bit of a strange occurance at Amy’s Cage three days prior to the photoshoot: she entered the house with a small group of friends, called out to Amy, hoping to provoke her into showing herself, and one of her friends fell ill almost immediately, supposedly vomiting blood and bleeding from the nose. She agreed to take me to the house a few days later.
What’s extra odd is that three days prior to this photoshoot, the house still stood. When we return to the house, it had been burned to the ground. All that remained was rubble, some dirty furniture and debris of glass and metal. I have yet to find any information on the destruction of Amy’s Cage, but I will leave you with this:
I took a small brick from the rubble, promising out loud to Amy’s spirit that I would bury the brick, hoping to give her a bit of a proper ‘burial’. I placed the brick in my backyard that night, with the intention to bury it in the daylight. The next morning, it was gone. Kind of strange, isn’t it? :)
Oh goodness, I’m sorry! Hahah I feel awful that I literally snatched it from you :)
