Lilitu was a Goddess before "Adam" ever "existed". She refused to submit Her power to the conquering patriarchal war God of the Hebrews, Yahweh. (And refused to lay UNDER Adam during sex.) And so she is remembered in myth as the first rebel--one who dared to defy the will of "God" and was punished for her lack of submission. She has every right to be angry, and so do we...

her expression is unique, and the work you've done to the photo emphasizes and fits perfectly into it.
great work.

wow... going from the Outcast piece to this works too perfectly. its a wonderful way to illustrate the transition that took place. the darker, colder, colors are simple and well used... they alone really set a mood here. but, that wild, half-crazy look on the face of Lilith is what gets me everytime i look at this. talk about "if looks could kill"! :D

oh yeah, in the upper left corner, there is a scratch or something that looks like a tiny fingernail moon... i love that because it makes this wilderness seem a little bit "off" compared to what we may usually envision. of course, the way the surrounding darkness is encroaching into Lilith's personal space seems to allude to becoming powerless.

lovely work again man.. as seems to always be the case :D

Lilith is an inspiration for me- as is this shot. I really love the darker tones of blue and green (as much as I love your warmer tones). It tells a story-

Awesome Kevin-

ps- found you on OMP- I recognized a photo of yours and there you were! My profile is under #59037 :) Someday here when I get the mulah, I'll join as a photographer. Until then...

This is by far one of the best series of photographs I have seen in a long long time....great work, I also like how you are using Lilith...she's such a great character with so much potention, it's a shame she doesn't come up more often.

I absolutely adore this series.
There's something characteristically primal about your subject and the texturisation of the pieces creates this prevalent visual continuity in the images. The tones and shades you use in the process add this immensity to it, a strange elvel of depth and morbidity in the obvious despair.

-excuse me while I refrain from talking like my English teacher on LSD-

Coolies man, I likie... -cough- That hurt me.

heh.... thank you so much. So much of the credit for this has to go to Athena (the model) she is just a genius to work with... she took the idea and just went with it...

english teachers on LSD...ah I remember those days...
