His Tenacity by Onyx-Philomel His Tenacity by Onyx-Philomel
His tenacity preserves only an early ambition – a promise of sorts to the murk.

Masks & obscurity are themes to which I am dedicated; hence, you won't find my face in my gallery.
Besides, my masks are me. :)

An enthralling depiction of strength and subtlety, from the placement of the hands to the illuminations on the skin. Very clever

This image is beautiful and intense, very expressive. The lighting, the contrast between positive and negative space, as well as the gaze despite the lack of being able to see the model's (your?) actual face makes for a really powerful photo.

What in his nature causes it to be so? What is the meaning behind the mask?

There is something about masks that instill a sense of dark neutrality, not brooding, but more pondering. The angle of the head and posing of the hand suggest and emotionless thought that suggests the intensity of it, but keeps it behind a solid wall. The fact that you can see the veins/tendons in the arm and hand support this. The coloring in black and white also supports this in my mind.
This is a very well done photo.

If only I could express how your pictures make me want to start spouting poetry. Each lends itself to some macabre explanation, without any real cause. Wonderful as always.
