This image is based on the song by Prodigy. It is meant to be a play on words of 'Spit-Fire', I felt actual fire wasn't an option, so the bullets would work better. The bullets also give this a more political twist with the blood, depending on how the viewer sees it.
This pic was shot in good light and a white background. It was taken using using a remote control to keep the camera steady and therefore the picture as blur free as posisble.It is also a self potrait.
The bullets are fake bullets you'd find on a keychain. There were cut in half with a hacksaw so they fitted better in my mouth, and also to use in other photoshoots.
The blood is entirely fake and is made using a mix of golden-syrup and red food colourings with small amounts od blue and green to make it slightly darker. This is to give it a viscous flow and sticky. It has no harmful effects when injested.
The image is not just a horror image, but has a concept behind it. The model is not simply meant to be holding bullets in their mouth, as it would imply being shot, but rather than the model is the dispenser of the bullets and therefore the blood of any victims.
If you have any questions, please look first to the Resurgere F.A.Q.. If you do not find answers there, then post your question on that page.
The free magazine I edit, Thaneros Online, plans to do a brief exposé on Resurgere, outlining how stock is truly art in its own right. I was wondering if I might be able to use this piece as the basis for the wallpaper give-away we will be including in this issue. No profit is being made, and credit will go to both yourself as well as Resurgere. Additionally, I would like to store the piece so people can see the original, but I understand that Resurgere is somewhat reluctant about that. We would certainly note that it is not for further distribution.
