The Most Beautiful Suicide
On May Day, just after leaving her fiancé, 23-year-old Evelyn McHale wrote a note. ‘He is much better off without me … I wouldn’t make a good wife for anybody,’ … Then she crossed it out. She went to the observation platform of the Empire State Building. Through the mist she gazed at the street, 86 floors below. Then she jumped. In her desperate determination she leaped clear of the setbacks and hit a United Nations limousine parked at the curb. Across the street photography student Robert Wiles heard an explosive crash. Just four minutes after Evelyn McHale’s death Wiles got this picture of death’s violence and its composure. The serenity of McHale’s body amidst the crumpled wreckage it caused is astounding. Years later, Andy Warhol appropriated Wiles’ photography for a print called Suicide (Fallen Body).
Wasn't sure since English is not my native language. Thought it was more like "Yeah, it beggins to be really interesting."
I wouldn't like this topic to stop (nor Lady Acacia, a tree with spikes, mind you) cause it may have been the best PIC thread ever.
Not polished, raw and artistic, real, everything our world is made of. Do we all want to kiss unicorns? No.
I, for one, like reality and its complexity more than any dreams companies or society want me to buy. Yes this is disturbing cause we don't want to know about wars and dead kids and dogs eating porks.
But C'mon, there are just a few shots in this thread which are working only over their shocking value.
Let's be adults, or not. NSFW stands for Not Suitable For Whiners.
