A 2013 photographic assignment, the tale of Orpheus and Euridice was to be examined and subsequently imaged as the tale evokes illusionary metaphors. I was struck with a contemporary shallowness of the tale and how the final sentence concluded the tale with “He had lost her forever through his lack of faith.”
Not wanting to end the story on this point, my approach was to continue the tale to a still tragic conclusion but one justified by their love. Attached is the original tale along with the illustrated new conclusion.
