Rotter & Cisowska: The Maelstrom Shoot.



Adam Rotter took these; Karolina Nem Cisowska posed for them. Unusually, they were inspired not by Starfish but by Maelstrom; the result is a spread of desolation and death somewhat at odds with Adam's usual work as— wait for it— a wedding photographer.

He's posted these pictures over on facebook, under the title Projekt "Syrena"; most are accompanied by the bits of Maelstrom that inspired them. I've stolen both pictures and passages for re-use here, with Adam's permission and with my profound gratitude. It takes a certain gift to see the beauty in carnage.
