A CULTLLEADER'S GUIDE TO ESCAPE

Inspired by the dark and unusual, the dirty and ignored by society, and unwashed feet and big eyes desperately trying to escape and let the world know of their pain, 'Cultlleader' Belle Patton creates a photo series exclusively for LYTD to say what's on her mind.

"The only way people will listen is if you romanticize and glorify it, so that is what this editorial is. It transforms a cry for help into an aesthetically pleasing photo. The vintage nightgowns contrast the imprisoning wooden panels and metal pipes. The pastel colors draw your eyes away from the dinghy and unkempt surroundings. But as you realize the true message of the photos, your perception changes. Flowers start to bleed, pastries turn to dirt, tragedy shows it's face. It's all an illusion to keep you interested and entertained."
