Glum facial expressions are a big part of the indie genre. Most images, like this one, have moody faces which add to the alternative feel of the image. I would like to take and use a picture like this on my magazine pages as a lot of focus is on the model and her expressions. This is a perfect example of something I would expect to see in an indie magazine
I love this painting because it is so obscure. It's super hard to see what it is so it really makes you think - the whole point of art. Something about it is really interesting and strangely beautiful.
