What year did you graduate from ACT?
c/o 2012

My name is Ezekiel Bader and I am in A.C.T to work towards becoming the best artist that I can be. I will be attending the Art Institute of San Bernardino starting this July. In the future I plan to become a graphic designer but, I am also very interested in photo retouching and editing. I would love to work for a well known company, and maybe freelance on the side, but until then I am going to do whatever it takes to make my dreams come true.

Pyrhha & The Flood

Model/Make-up/Hair: Camille Cox
Styling/Concept/Photo by me
During the Bronze Age, humans caused so much mayhem that Zeus bitterly decided to end humankind, sending the Great Flood to wash away the mortals. Prometheus, who was in jail, told his kind-hearted son Deucalion of his foresight of the end of the times, and warned him to build an ark to live through the deluge. Morally righteous Deucalion and his wife, Pyrhha, were the only survivors.

During the flood, the couple's ark landed on Mount Parnassus, the only place unharmed. Although grateful for their lives, they immediately grew sad and lonely, being the last two mortals. Deucalion consulted the oracle Themis and asked for guidance on how to repopulate the Earth.



"The Great Goddess heard their prayer and replied to them: 'Leave my temple, both of you. Let your clothing hang loosely, ungathered and unbelted. Hide your faces with your clothing, and as you bend down to the earth, throw the bones of your mighty mother over your shoulders and behind your backs.'" (-"Mythology & You," Donna Rosenburg)

Heeding the oracle's advice, they did as they were told. From what they tossed over their shoulders sprang up statues of women and men, which over time, turned into real flesh and blood, all eager to serve Deucalion and Pyrhha. The man and woman became king and queen of what we now refer to as "people" (laos in Greek) because they were created from stones (laas).


According to the actual story in Greek mythology, Themis' advice was a cryptic message. Deucalion and Pyrhha agreed that throwing the bones of their mothers seemed sacrilegious and disrespectful to the dead, so they thought to interpret their "mother" as Earth, and decided to use stones from the ground in place of bones.

For this photo, there is a lot of symbolism. Instead of using rocks I thought to use a skull instead (let's admit, rocks and stones wouldn't be as cool-looking, lol). Aside from the cool factor, the skull symbolizes the death of humans, and Pyrhha gently holding it in a somber fashion reveals her sadness and sorrow for being the last female mortal.

Having Camille in the water was also a representation of the flood. I draped her loosely in fabric, true to the myth. I did have a few shots with her hood on, but thought it looked less "witchy" and more whimsy without it on. Consider that minute factor plus the skull in place of stones my own twist to the story.

There you have it folks, death and rebirth, Greek mythology style.
