"The Rejection of Charon"


This year in february Phillip Heinz and I met in my hometwon Görlitz to find inspiration for another photoshooting.


In the end we had the idea to visualise a narrative around "Charons rejection".

In Greek mythology, Charon is the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead. A coin to pay Charon for passage, usually an obolus was sometimes placed on the dead person.


Haha and my job was to model as the drowned person  and to draw the fine lines for the narrative.

:D It was quite a difficult (but also funny) experience because keeping the expression under water is not an easy task!
