Eroded Skull in Black and White

Eroded skull with parts of face missing, art photograph in black and white by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Black Erosion. Literal, but with a nice ring to it. There’s also a color version of this, which is why the ‘black’ part of the title is there.

I really like the shape of this skull, and its degraded condition.

Perhaps some would find it hard to believe given the subject matter, but I aim for a light feel to my skull imagery. However, I have to admit I failed on that front with this image. It turned out eerier and more gothic than anticipated.

I think it has its own special charm, though.
