el ojo 1 by markdaughn el ojo 1 by markdaughn
model: luana lani [link]
photographer: mark daughn [link]
publisher: mystique magazine [link]

It's a time of assassins.. always the most feared are the ones that are insane, in this time and in this place she rules!


I want to thank luana [link] for trusting and allowing me to take her places that only live in my warped brain. It is a twisted place. Not many models would give me the freedom to make them look crazy/insane and not perfect. She has the guts to walk the path with me.

I wanted to go completely outside the box and capture the conflicting feelings of disturbing, attraction and subtle fear. Hopefully I did it!

Please let me know if I succeeded, I really want to hear opinions and feedback on this series.

Not bad... but the eyes look too "unreal" for my taste, like a piece of plastics. It's ok if I try to think about her as a cyborg/android but I wouldn't believe it's a photography of real human (nor even crazy). Just my opinion (You were asking for them, weren't you? ;) ).

I always dig colored contacts in the right situation...I'm just not sure what I think of it here....maybe its not the best color or saturation....maybe it should be more pale....or perhaps more like a bright cerulean......I dunno. Luana is a great model, but I don't think those specific contacts do her her justice.

Great concept, fantastic model, and kudos to you for stepping out that comfy little box we love to dwell in! This came out great and I love the idea behind this shoot! Assassins are always popular cause they are just so cool! Most excellent work!

Good call by Luana (my fav DA model) for trusting you and your "warped brain" to produce a truly eerie/creepy fascinating series. I like the way you've strayed from the "norm" and produced these captivating pix :) Great work Mark!
