The three Fates by kisho
In my photography Appreciation class Im doing a final project surrounding photographs of my self in the form of an ABC book. Each letter representing a Greek myth character, and drawn from a photo of my self so in a way all of this series is a self portrait.
This is F the three Fates, Clotho Lachesis,and Atropos.
I don't know if any one knows a whole bunch about these three, so I'll tell you about them. The version I did this from is the theory that fate was three people in one person. One young, one middle aged and one old, each taking their turns over the body to do their duties.
Clotho is the youngest (birth), she spins the thread. Lachesis is the middle aged, and places the threads. Atropos, the oldest, cuts the thread (death).
When I did her I kept picturing her as an all knowing person...who automatically did her duties with out no emotion. I was stuck on how to express that, but the idea of a machine came to mind and well the three hands doing their work.
