Music and visuals for rituals.Tools: Photoshop CS6, Wacom, Macintosh.Black and white conversions with ON1Photo Raw.Under the name Hybryds, I have spend many years bringing my music and art out to the world.Myths, legends, religion, magic, dreams ... are the source of inspiration for my music and pictures. My models I meet on my travels and performances, together we create the images in my head:The themes of my personal art are Paganism, fairy tales, myths and legends. From portraits to stories, all (non-professional) models are recorded by me. Sometimes I like the picture as it is, or I'll bring it to a new universal story. The story that the model gives to me.Dark images from a pagan past. A hyper-realism which immerses the viewer into another world. The nightmares from one are the dreams of the other.Women, naked, painted, decorated, smeared in bondage, rubber or leather, shamelessly they look into the camera lens or languished turn their gaze away. They sojourn in bizarre worlds that only exist in the collective unconscious of humanity. The models are the witches of our times, they look and decide themselves how they show themselves on camera.The themes are dark and disquieting. They are full of contradictions, beauty and decay, chaos and creation, pain and pleasure, One needs contradictions to compare, to weigh. You can only enjoy the beauty if you know what is ugly. The present male monotheistic culture is confronted with his female counterpart from the past: Paganism, the culture where fertility, women, magic and dreams are centralized.
