This photo has an interesting composition with several images of the model photoshopped into one image. The gauze and heavy makeup suggest a mood and atmosphere that is mysterious and slightly creepy. The gauze also effects the features of the model creating a sense of the unknown.

This image has a dark mood and atmosphere with what appears to either be lipstick or potentially blood on the teeth of the subject.

Very intimate photograph of the subject. The composition is very straight forward with the subject in the center of the image for both images. The black and white helps bring out detail and dynamic light and shadow.
