Ethereal Aesthetics

Looking at the out of place to see how the viewer reacts to the photos and what they first notice about them. I tried to create a dreamy ethereal look to "romanticise" the atmosphere, combined with the contrast of the black eyed subjects to give an eery feel to them. I think that by doing this the viewer can make up their own story about these people, why do they have black eyes, what is the story behind them, are the visuals a false reality. It's almost as if the black eyes give something away and open up the question to whether photos aren't always truthful about the people in them.
