|"Maybe there aren't any such things as good or bad friends - maybe there are just friends, people who stand by you when you're hurt and who help you feel not so lonely. Maybe they're always worth being scared for, and hoping for, and living for. Maybe worth dying for, too, if that's what has to be. No good friends. No bad friends. Only people you want, need to be with; people who build their houses in your heart." -Stephen King, It|
|This is a photo from the “Only You” Photoshoot. It is based on an Urban Romeo & Juliet Theme.|
I think pretty much everyone knows the story of Romeo & Juliet, but if you don’t, it’s about two people who are in love but their love is frowned upon and they aren’t allowed to see each other. These photos depict that. The fence is the metaphorical barrier between them:
In the story the “fence” between them is their feuding families, but in this re-imagining the barrier is up for interpretation. It could be that the two are members of rival gangs, it could be that one of them is locked up because of some offense, or it could be simpler than that.
The story ends with both of the lovers committing suicide. If their love wasn’t allowed among the living, maybe they can be together forever among the dead. These photos depict romeo & juliets deaths’ and their meeting after death.
