Black & Blue (from the series 366)

By Helen Hates Peas

I edited with CSI in mind. I wanted the shot to feel confused, clinical. Anytime body parts are 'removed' or looked at in isolation there is always an element of forensic about the whole thing. I wanted the bruise to be a central point to the story in this image, it is quite shocking, I haven't had a bruise this bad...I cant remember ever! The evolution of it has been rather morbidly fascinating to watch, I used it as a location to channel Guy Bourdin, one of my favourite photographers.
