the useless shit i wear by suzi9mm the useless shit i wear by suzi9mm
umm, something different from me. boring isn't it? i find it important for myself, and i put it in the expressive-section as for me...i dunno, it means something.

i took this on film several weeks ago. i hadn't planned it so i had Fuji 400 in, and as i don't have proper macro equipment (:x (Mad) ) it's, well, as you see... i scanned the print and adjusted the curve a bit, that's all.

Heart there's my barbell, watch, ring, earrings...4 rings and heart. i ditched them after the shoot, the ring and earrings i mean. i had worn the earrings for 8 years. it wasn't a statement of any kind, i had just "grown out" of them... the tiny heart i have on my tooth is not there surprisingly, they don't come in on-off versions Shrug

I like the band. I love silver b/c it looks so much better than gold, so I like the ring. LALALA!

very nice. kind of has an old feeling for me... the graininess i guess.. but i enjoy that :) (Smile) is interesting. jewelry can be such a prt of who someone is. i have 4 bracelets on my left wrist, and one has been there since grade 2 (i'm in university now).. I think I'd feel absolutely lost if i took it off o.O

why dont put among all that "useless shit" a wedding ring? it would give a little more meaning to that already great concept.
I dont know i should say these kind of comments or make suggestions, please dont take them wrong, i really admire what i've seen of your work, thats why i dare to say the nonsenses i ussually say
(i have the feeling that my spelling is particular bad today)

What? I haven't commented on this yet? I thought I had. Anyway, I find there's a kind of morbidity to the image, as if looking at what is left of someone after they're gone, like a little pile of personal affects at a morgue. I don't know if that's what you were trying to convey, but that's what I get out of it. Anyway, it's cool.

That is one fine watch you have there...I haven't seen anything like that before! I definately know how it is with the jewels and other decorations...you do almost feel naked when you go out without them all on. When I remove my earrings, necklaces, chokers, chains and things of the like every night, the end up in a pile looking quite similar to this...only my pile doesn't look as pretty! ;]

I love the grain and that it is b&w. I'm curious about how that heart on the tooth works, also...never heard of that before!

I love this composition and the concept that underlies it. The ways in which we mark our bodies is incredibly important, and the "collection" here, that becomes a unique "still life", in a way produces the effects of the body as a series of artifacts --> the body is invisible, but it's "scene" is invoked here, and I love that.
Hardly a boring piece, I find it incredibly evocative.

its cool to document stages in your life. I used to have zero gauge eyelets in my ears....so extremely painful to get. I took them out and now I realize I have no pictures of them..would have been nice to show my kids what a crazy fuck I once was. oh well I love this. I wish I could see the heart on your tooth, though. sounds cool.

Nice photograph.

I don't wear anything sorta accessories, not even an earing. There was this craze once, to wear an earling in one ear, but it looked really stupid. Maybe you could suggest something that'd look good on me?- there's a photograph of me in my gallery.

Although, I'm nuts about totoo's. Just waiting for my bicep to hit the 15 inch mark ;) (Wink)

I like the graininess, it almost looks like a really good pencil sketch rather than a photo.

Hmm... Perhaps a Macro would have helped this. It looks like you blew up the tiniest portion of your film (I've done that - looks ugly ;_;) (Wink) cuz it's all grainy, but that might be your film and a filter, not sure. Look at me, I talk like I know anything. Roll Eyes
Although perhaps some more contrast near the ring would have helped, too. Anyway. It's still a nice clump of jewelry. :) (Smile) I had no idea you wore a barbell. Giggle
