Fight Club inspired Photo 3 — "Coffee"

Sunday · 1 Mar 09 · 09:55 PM IST | Posted by Karthik | Category: Art

I was going through some old images from my TAPMI days, and came across a drawing that I'd done in 2004 (I almost forgot about this actually).  This was based on a line of dialogue from the Fight Club book by Chuck Palahniuk, which doesn't appear in the movie.  The line is quite disturbing and funny at the same time!  So this time, I decided to do a photo based on that (I am the one in the photo as well as the photographer).  Take a look —

Fight Club Photo Experiment 3 — Photographed and Starring Karthik Abhiram

Perhaps the quality of this photo isn't up to the standard of the previous effort.  The "digital bruises" could also probably be done a little better.  Anyway, I think overall it turned out pretty well.  For the record, here's the drawing this photo was based on —

Hard to believe it's already been four and a half years since I did that!

Disturbing, yes. Your red shading quite brings out the statement.
I remember there was a time in TAPMI, I was re-obsessed with Fight Club. "When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep... and you're never really awake".
