"Art is Dead | Death is Art"

Imago Mortis was distilled in the mind of Sean M. Palfrey in 2007, originally as a range of Occult/Gothic/Heavy Metal themed t-shirts that drew upon influences such as Medieval Danse Macabre woodcuts, Renaissance Anatomical Sketches, and Tarot cards filtering them through the styles of 1980's Gothic Rock and Heavy Metal merchandise.

Since this time Imago Mortis has incorporated both photography and design work under it's banner with commissions from a wide range of clients from fields historical re-enactment, music, consulting, modelling websites, and university societies.

Today Sean focusses on creating dark and surreal work, preferring infra-red portraiture, low-key lighting and long exposures to create experimental art that hark back to the likes of Man Ray and the pioneering years of antiquated photography.

As always Imago Mortis is available for commission for Photography, Album Artwork, Video Directing, and Web Design.

Sean is also registered on Zivity - if you are a model on Zivity or looking to join, Sean is planning a series of infra-red and surreal/occult themed editorial shoots specifically for the site.

I'm open to collaborative works that stimulate my imagination but I will only do limited TF* work from now on in order to concentrate on my forthcoming projects.
If you would like to hire me for portfolio shoots or commercial projects my rates are available from my website. Email me for a PDF price list.
