‘Hex 000000’, a New Photo-Project by Ben Hopper (Part 2: Gloss) – NSFW

No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.

Carl Gustav Jung

Please find info about prints, credits and instructions for press at the bottom of the post.

Today I’m sharing the 2nd part of my new photo-project Hex 000000; ‘Gloss’.
To see the 1st ‘Matt’ part, please go here.

The works represent a photographic study of colour and human textures.
They also represent an expression of mood, a reflection of myself.
Hex 000000 is the computing code on web pages and image-editing programs for the colour Black. The name was chosen to focus on colour, rather than ethnicity.

A long black sleep
Descends upon my life
The fear, the insecurity
The self-doubt
Confusion and uncertainty
The loneliness
The hate
The longing for connection but inability to follow through
The silence
The darkness
The sleep

I can no longer see anything
I am losing my remembrance
of the bad and the good…
