A Ringwraith from The Lord of the Rings. There is an obvious resemblance between this image and the previous image I’ve posted. Their contexts, however, are different and I wonder if that affects our experiences. In the previous image, we know that the model’s face is rendered invisible to us due to lighting effects. The Ringwraiths’ bodies, on the other hand, have faded and can’t be seen in any lighting. Does this knowledge alter our experiences? I’m also curious about how specific our experiences are. Are we aware of absence of a female or a male face when we see these images? Or are our experiences indifferent to that?
