In the Mood For… Twin Peaks, Part II: Dweller on the Threshold

Friends, what follows is a photo shoot, where vanity, obsession and “for lack of a better term… magic” meet. Captured in the towns of North Bend and Snoqualmie, Washington, this is my personal surrealist fantasy-vision of Twin Peaks:

“Into the night…”

tp roadhouse

“I’m Audrey Horne and I get what I want…”

“Do you palms ever itch?”

tp couch

“Secrets are dangerous things Audrey.”

tp falls

“The owls are not what they seem.”

tp woods

There’s a sort of evil out there. Something very, very strange in these old woods. Call it what you want. A darkness, a presence. It takes many forms but… its been out there for as long as anyone can remember.”

As the night wind blows, the boughs move to and fro.
The rustling, the magic rustling that brings on the dark dream.

tp riverI believe the Black Lodge is the source of what you’ve traditionally referred to here as the evil in the woods.”

“Through the darkness of future’s past, the magician longs to see. One chants out between two worlds… “Fire… walk with me.””
tp sunset

“She’s filled with secrets.”

tp laura heart“There is another place, its opposite, of almost unimaginable power, chock full of dark forces and vicious secrets. No prayers dare penetrate this frightful maw. Spirits there care not for good deeds and priestly invocations. They are as like to rip the flesh from your bones as greet you with a happy g’day. And, if harnessed, these spirits, this hidden land of unmuffled screams and broken hearts, will offer up a power so vast that its bearer might reorder the earth itself to his liking. This place I speak of, is known as the Black Lodge.”

“I feel like I know her, but sometimes my arms bend back…”

“If you confront the Black Lodge with imperfect courage, it will utterly annihilate your soul.”

“She said people try to be good but they’re really sick and rotten, her most of all, and every time she tried to make the world a better place, something terrible came up inside her and pulled her back down into hell. Took her deeper and deeper into the blackest nightmare.”

tp end

“I guess you can say that about almost anything in life… it’s not so bad as long as you can keep the fear from your mind.”

If you haven’t seen Part I, you might enjoy it.

    Wow, nice. 😀 Your look fits the whole David Lynch aesthetic very well, I think. (Lynch meets Lunch, maybe? 😛 )
    Is Twin Peaks like Mulholland Drive? I loved that film.

    Loved this. Lynch would be proud.

      Thanks! I tried tweeting it to Mark Frost and Kyle MacLachlan, haha.

        It’s too bad ‘Fire Walk With Me’ couldn’t live up to the quirky beauty of ‘Twin Peaks’. It was just more or less convoluted and disturbing, and never translated ‘Peaks’ small screen charm and noir-ish creepiness to the big screen.
