Collaborations are hard, and the difficulty bar gets higher the more people involved. However, pulling a big collaborative effort done well, can produce massive results. Photographer Rob Woodcox (see his story here) collaborated with over 20 friends and three top creatives to cope up with the skeleton queene story.

Each photo of the Skeleton Queen story can stand alone, but together they form a solid story:

(if you were wondering, the dress designer is Michelle Hébert, models is Chelsea Page and body painter is Chelsea Sinks).

There once was a girl who searched for love, she chased its touch through the earth below and the heavens above

She danced and she sang till her feet were sore, so many nights growing one in the same. But soon the hands they ripped and they tore, at the seams of her heart still aflame

She ran and she climbed exclaiming her woes to the lovers she’d left behind, but the powerful grip of their lingering desire kept them intertwined

Until one day she realized amidst a darkened hour, the trials faced through low and high had carried her quite far. The world in which she lived was vast, and her experiences became her power

Rob Woodcox is a surreal portrait and fine artist born in Houston, raised in Detroit, and currently residing in Portland Oregon. He exercises his talent for photography with a passion that is unquenchable and contagious. As he creates each piece of his artwork, Rob strives to capture fragments of a vivid life sewn by the threads of reality, memory and dream. Each concept is a declaration of his experience and seeks to tell a meaningful story to each individual that views it.

You can see more of Rob’s work on his website and blog, and say hi on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and 500px
