Ligeia My Bride or The Other Ligeia

"The Other Ligeia" is a photo project, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's short story "Ligeia", first published in 1838.
The story is told by an unnamed narrator who describes the qualities of Ligeia: a beautiful, passionate and intellectual woman, raven-haired and dark-eyed.
Ligeia becomes ill, struggles internally with human mortality, ultimately dies, and allegedly resurrects.
The shot was taken at Villa De Vecchi (Italian Governor of Rhodes between 1936-1940) which was built for Benito Mussolini.
