Lost Love on the Titanic
The sinking of the ocean liner, RMS Titanic in 1912 was brought to life once again by the fictionalised epic romance film, “ Titanic” in 1997 with Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack Dawson and Kate Winslet as Rose DeWitt Bukater.
With this in mind, I wanted to portray an image of a handsome couple swearing undying love for each other. The scene was set against the backdrop of a threatening skyline and contrasted against the heavy, sturdy bow of the ship as it sailed on its ill-fated maiden voyage.
For me, this prompts an emotional response and acknowledges the frailty of the human condition and our unknown destiny. Hence, Carpe Diem!
