I'm not sure what anyone would expect going into a thread titled "Death and Decay".  I am always amazed at the childishness that adults can put on display.  Requiring other people to label things so that you don't have to make informed (in this case, by the very title) decisions on your own is quite childish.  But this is not my forum, so I will not protest keeping the children happy.

Jan, interesting image.  Though I feel like the selective color is seperated too abruptly from the b/w and detracts from the image.

Peter, harrowing image.  Wish the feet weren't cropped, but a minor quibble.  I'm surprised to see it hollowed out, I've never seen anything like that.

Maybe make it 'explicit'... like in 'explicit death & corpse decay. Seems to be common (political correct) sense.
For those who need guidance to stay away from something they personally or culturally avoid.

I'd read 'graphic' more like in 'graphic novel',- which may be related to English not being my mother language.

Interesting, if you type "graphic images" in Google you get very colourful computer generated images but if you type "warning graphic images" you get some very disturbing content. If you type "explicit images" some nudity shows up but nothing in line with the the images posted here.

Anyway, we should be fine but as mentioned I got some complaint last time my "Death by DOF" image was posted in the old forum. Just wanted to prevent such response but in all honesty putting warning in titles usually attracts more attention :)

You could announce the toad as "Nude Toad (Warning: Graphic)", for example.:D

I do remember that toad. It was - should we say - compressed. The reason for its compressed state can be seen in my concurrent UV shot, posted here (I was testing a Peleng 8 mm for UV, which didn't work very well by the way),

"Bucher and lamb"

Bjørn, love the colors and geometry.

Jan, I dig the mono tone and comp.  The fish just visible to the right adds a lot.

Thomas, I agree but meat consumption  will inevitably plummet due to bio-technology rendering raising animals for meat far less profitable than printing/growing meat without the animals.  Raised meat will become a luxury.  Morals have some power but economics are the law of human survival.

Interesting side note, a recent University study debunked the long held idea that Constrictors kill by suffocating their prey.  The scientists felt Constrictors killed prey too quickly for it to be due to suffocation, so they undertook a detailed study that revealed obstructive shock is the true cause of death.  Simplified, the Constrictor stops the prey's circulatory system.  Quite efficient!

No question this is graphic enough. But the thread title contains the required warning ....

I wonder about the circumstances behind this scene, though.
Title: Re: Death & Decay (warning, contains graphic images!!!)
Post by: BW on February 04, 2016, 22:49:47
I was doing anatomical studies at a university in asia. I went in to a store room and found that they had no shortage of materials. They had several tubs with corpses and bodyparts floating in formaldehyde. I took this one picture to document their attitude towards handling deseased persons and human remains. I had a hard time deciding whether I should delete the picture or not.

A couple of years ago I was out hiking with my kids and wife. We had decided to have our evening meal at a scenic spot near our house where we could watch the sun set. When we arrived I noticed a women hanging from a tree. I turned the kids around and told my wife to call the police. The woman was already dead, but I had talked to her a few hours earlier, when she came by our house asking for directions to the location. As I waited for the police to arrive I took my camera trying to frame her against the setting sun. It was a very powerful picture, documenting the meaningless act of suicide we all to often experience here in norway. But I was not able to press the shutter on that occation.
Title: Re: Death & Decay (warning, contains graphic images!!!)
Post by: Tristin on February 04, 2016, 22:54:29
BW, wow.  I find their handling of the deceased quite disrepectful.  That is too bad.  As for the woman who killed herself, that is a tragic story.  My heart goes out to those that loved her.
Title: Re: Death & Decay (warning, contains graphic images!!!)
Post by: Bjørn Rørslett on February 04, 2016, 23:00:49
In my student days, I had numerous extra jobs to earn money for subsistence (and keeping wives happy ...).  Much of this was as a paramedic. That lead me to learn first hand all the dark sides of a modern society with deaths, suicides, victims of fatal accidents, and what have you. I have observed much worse than what BW shows us here, and sometimes wondered if the pictures really could be used. I decided against it in most cases. Death in any form is unpleasant for those watching the outcome. We don't need the visual reminder of scenes that burn themselves to the retina. For those lucky enough to never have encountered this dark side of life, BW's image can be an eye-opener.
Title: Re: Death & Decay (warning, contains graphic images!!!)
Post by: Tristin on February 04, 2016, 23:20:23
When it comes to human death, I agree that most of the time images would not be productive.  Though there are instances where human death can serve as powerful reminders of how we ought to treat each other.  War photography is mainly what comes to mind, though others like the portraits from Tuol Sleng are immense reminders of how vigilant people must remain against hatred and cold heartedness, and to be more compassionate.  The photographic evidence of the Nazi genocide programs will serve as a powerful opponent of facism, totalitarianism and authoritarianism for many generations.  Kevin Carter's image of the starving Sudanese child and the vulture is tragically powerful, and I have no doubt it has spurred increased compassion towards people suffering famine.  His suicide was a big loss for the world.
Title: Re: Death & Decay (warning, contains graphic images!!!)
Post by: BW on February 04, 2016, 23:32:53
I'm sure you have Bjørn. There are certainly som forensic pictures that would make one loose sleep. It is hard to photograph a deceased without being left with ethical ambiguity. One the other hand one should not be disconnected to a integral part of natural cycle of life. In the early days of photography it was quite common to incorporate the deceased in a family portrait. Today, that would make picture go "viral" (hate that term, really hate it).
Tristan, you make some very good points here!

Thank you Borge for sharing the picture of the suicide with us.

I worked for the radio for many years. Pictures are transferable without cameras. Head cinema.

Very probably I would have taken a shot with the abstraction of exposing her to a black sihouette from every angle.

Why? Because for me photography is another mode of operation. A mode of self protection sometimes. Like writing.
I detach myself from the scene by banning the words or pictures to an "outside" medium.

very strong thread. Thank you, Tristin and all contributers.

Reason I quit chasing fire trucks and ambulances and chucked my scanner for newspaper money, after awhile you become numb until that one time..
It was Pulitzer prize level but I couldn't shoot it, not that it was gory but the whole single driver single vehicle accident scenario before me told the whole story without words. That was truly sad and it hit me square between the eyes.. I just stood there reaching up with my F3 framing it then putting it down.
