Just browsing through your stuff, I love the angle and lighting. Also the placement of the bodies and how you can't tell what anyone is looking at. Not sure how i feel about the gummies, but they created a nice composition so it doesn't matter now does it.

@Kara Pesznecker: Thanks, so much for your comment, Kara!
Heh, well the gummies weren't put there as an artistic statement. You might not believe this, but this photo was from a mock disaster scenario put on by the Toronto Ambulance service. The scenario was that a van full of worm-pickers overturned on the highway. This actually happened once. Gummies were used instead of real worms as they were supposed to be less messy. That's debatable.
Alright that totally adds to the awesomeness of this picture, I really do like it a lot, but as an art student I spend far to much of my time critiquing people's work and I can just hear my teacher saying "why? does it work?" haha, I need a break. I just have to know was there consumption of the gummies afterwards?

@Kara Pesznecker: Before, not after. I'll email you a photo with a 'taste' of the aftermath. Plus I think people were sick of them since they ate so many beforehand. There were bags and bags of them...
