Domestic Violence Shoot

Model: Sabeeka ImamMake Up and Hair: Kylie McMichael Photography: Drew Morgan Assistant: Heather Bohnenstiehl

I enlisted Kylie and Sabeeka to help me create a personal project themed around domestic violence, the idea being to visualise the devision between the public face of the person being abused, and the manifestation of the hurt, whether physical, verbal or psychological.

In short - you cannot always see the abuse.

Kylie made Sabeeka up using typical beauty makeup on one side, with a clear split down the middle, the other side using special effects techniques from her box of magic lotion, potions and things!

The effect is quite spectacular in my opinion, and when Sabeeka popped outside on a break she certainly caused some concern amongst passers-by.

The next image is slightly desaturated along the divide to enhance the visual impact of the two sides.
