Out of the whole Asylum series, I think this is my favorite. While the grainy texture got on my nerves for a few seconds, I thought it added a little something to the atmosphere. It's like a screenshot from an old video. Everything from the gag to the model's haircut look like an SM punk encounter gone wrong, but it's the dark red from the needle that really brings home the horror.

There isn't a single soft object in this image. The metal's pitted and rusted, the model's skin is grainy from the image, and the labcoat looks dirty. The whole thing has a slightly greasy feel to it, like a doctor's office that was never cleaned. It's oddly disturbing the longer I look at it.

I do wonder about one thing, and it is a minor thing. While everything else in the image is gritty and dirty, the model's skin is flawless except for the slight grain pattern. While this may not be intended to be a "real" photograph, and it does work wonderfully, a little dirt on the model, something to make her look as distressed as her expression, would have added to it. Still, it is a minor thing, and it may have distracted from her figure and beautiful skin.

Like I said, it's a minor thing.

Overall, the photograph both shows off the model's lovely face and figure (what we can see) and the photographer's skill at beautiful, emotive, and disturbing images.

I think this is as powerful a picture as I've ever seen in the victim-of-science/medical experimentation fetish genre. (People taking the subject matter as anything but fetish traum-logic, I think, are missing the point entirely...) The model's expression, the pose, and the art direction are unforgiving and ferocious, and the technical 'finish' of the image is cinematic and absolutely inspired. You must have seen HIGH TENSION, FRONTIER(S), and especially MARTYRS.
This is a great shock image.
