An image, titled “Blood Dress”, from photographer Melissa Trotter, is taking the horror community by storm. Trotter, owner of Stolen Innocence Photography, has an amazing talent for capturing the dark and beautiful.
I spoke to Trotter about her artwork/photography. When asked about where she draws her inspiration from she simply answered “Everywhere.”
Trotter rarely photos anything other than images of her design. The reason, she said she felt like she “would be cheating people. I’ve found that I only get really excited about doing my own designs. That might sound selfish, but it’s true.” When I asked Trotter if she had a favorite image so far, she spoke like a true artist, answering that “They are all my favorites, each for a different reason.” While scrolling through her website, I discovered exactly what she meant. Each image is dark and captivating, with no two photographs alike.
Little Lost Girl
It’s hard to believe that this incredibly talented Canadian photographer has only been specializing in horror themes for a year. I can not wait to see where talent takes her.
