she would be german

My roommate Candy also directed my attention to this German photographer, known for her gothic work. The goth scene appears to be much more popular in Germany than in many other places for reasons I can't fathom.

Annie Bertram's photos are very Victorian goth. The closest I could find to a steampunk-type look was this one:

The model is wearing a hoop skirt, and her skirt actually has cogs and gears attached to it. Reminds me a bit of Mother War from My Chemical Romance's music video for "Welcome to the Black Parade."

  1. I really love the contrast and similarities of these two photos, even though the second one is nightmare-inducing (thanks Gerard). I also like that you point out the cogs in the skirt cause I actually missed them the first time I looked.
    Gah, I feel like I should tell you things to do to improve but I really like this so far! I mean, I guess my only question/problem is that I have no idea what steampunk is but I think I'll find out once I delve into posts prior to this week.
    But from what I've seen so far: keep it up.

  2. To learn more about steampunk and what it is you can either go to my brief blog post about it:
