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.
