And The Stars Made Love To The Universe

“We are alive
And the stars make love to the universe
You’re my wildfire every single night”

I created this multiple exposure with 3 images – a portrait, fire from burning alcohol, and the night sky (completely embellished because I get too much light pollution in my back yard).  What inspired this creation was the song Empire by Shakira, which I recently heard and felt moved by.  There is a beauty to the composition as well as the lyrics and emotion conveyed in its story-telling.

In school this week, we were focused on story-telling, so this just seemed to click conceptually for me.  I honestly had plans for highly stylized make-up, but once I got the lyrical itch, I had to work this one through to the end.

Enjoy! ♥
