Women’s Army Corps zombie

A rarity from me, an image in portrait orientation! Well, to be honest, I took the photo in landscape and cropped around the woman’s face to remove distracting background/foreground elements – so the image is a little grainy and not as sharp as it could be. But I really liked the expression on her face – she was looking pretty good for someone who died during World War II. It would have been nice to get the crop right first time, but it’s not always easy when you’re amidst a large crowd of marching zombies and only have a few seconds to take the shot.

Beach of the Dead V, 22 October 2011. Beach of the Dead is a “zombie walk” that takes place annually in Brighton near to the time of Halloween. Inspired by the classic horror film genre (particularly the George A Romero films), participants garb themselves up as the undead and parade en masse in character from the Victoria Gardens on Grand Parade to the Concorde 2 night club on the seafront.

This year an estimated 4000 people took part in the march.

  1. Awesome. I think it works. I encounter this scenario often as your best expressions always arise so quickly and spontaneous. And for the subject matter, the grainy and diffused detail also works well in a high speed film sort of way.
