Losing Faith by manuelestheim Losing Faith by manuelestheim
So happy to finally be able to share this with you :)

This will be the cover of a split EP 2 local hardcore bands will release in early April. They asked me to do a conceptual self portrait involving criticism on religion, a natural background and generally a pretty dark feel. So that's exactly what my work is usually like - great opportunity for me to get my name out there and do what I love!

Aaaand you won't believe me how much the crown made of barbed wire hurt!

Oh WOW. Manuel!! This is insanely good! Your expression is heart-breaking, and the floating drops make it seem so unreal at the same time as being painfully real, if you know what I mean? I'm blown away! THIS is what makes great photography. You've outdone yourself this time! :heart:
