Standing for all the silent cries the smoke of hope gets in her eyes. Tallulah Morton speaks without words in ‘Smile Till it Hurts’ by Herring & Herring for FIT FOR PRINT. In the shadows of suffering I look to the power of poetic vision for clarity. Beauty breaking through the clouds of brutality, as we attempt to make sense of recent events, we turn to the art of expression to help us heal. In the era of radical extremes I opt for a solution revolution. An inspired vision of hope, this movement calls on the external forces of creativity to light the way. Building up an arsenal of artistic ammunition, we use the tools of interpretation as weapons in our fight to find meaning. Between chaos and control lives the nomadic interludes of unrestrained resistance where defiance is drawn out in jagged little pieces of rebellious revolt. Temporary tattoo style markings displayed in mortal effigy, Morton bares the branding of our fallen heroes in symbolic strikes across her skin. An homage to those we’ve lost. The human canvas is converted into a tapestry of tragedy laid out on the fabric of flesh. A shocking series designed to make you think. In an ongoing effort to expand the cultural relevancy of modern photography, Herring & Herring holds fashion to the highest possible standard with emotive works that dare to explore the controversial landscape of current events.
