Hey everyone! It’s The Demented Ferrets resident artist, Ruka. As an artist, I tend to see the world a bit differently than most, so we thought why not share the way I see the world with all of you?
The idea is to post a drawing, a sketch, a photograph, or even in some cases the process of how I got to the final product, followed by a brief synopsis of its inspiration and what it means to me. I believe that in time this could also be a great learning opportunity for me and hopefully, everyone involved.
It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words, well I believe that photography speaks to people, no matter your country of origin or what language you speak, it will always connects us. I wish to share with you my thoughts and feelings in my work. Hope you enjoy it!
“Innocence” was taken, on a recent trip to Maryland. During my stay, I was invited to a photography studio by my best friend. Personally, I have never been to a studio before, and while the outside was normal looking the inside told a different story. The two-story building consisted of various rooms, a dressing room area, a break-room, outdoor space and had everything you may need to be creative. These rooms have a sort of aesthetic allowing you to experiment and explore both the photographer’s vision and helping to incorporate any ideas the models may have themselves.
It was in one of these rooms that I found inspiration for the shoot. The room was appropriately nicknamed the “white room” for its soft white color and the way the light bounced from the walls just helped soften the space. A single bed decorated the empty space in the middle and to me, it was like a blank canvas, that I could splash a bit of color and create something amazing.
While in the dressing room the model found some plastic roses and while discussing what can be done with them, a single rose fell into this white canvas of a room, a single splash of color made the possibilities endless.
“Innocence” for me has two very different feelings attached to it. First, it reminds me of a simpler time, a time when I was younger and my father would surprise us with flowers, a small gesture letting us know how much we mean to him. While the second, it’s a more romanticization of the first time. A representation of when we give ourselves to the person we love in body, spirit, and soul.
