Strange Symbiosis

“Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.”

- Rainer Maria Rilke (one of my favourite wise writers ever - who also happens to be a fellow Czech)

The picture above was taken by Tierney Gearon as part of a photo essay collection called "The Mother Project." The monstrous being terrifying the helpless babe with that horrifying mask is actually the child's mother... moments before (sans mask) they'd been frolicking in the field all smiles.
