After the ﬁrst Graphic Novel was published, it was intended to jump into development of the next book. Meanwhile other media deal wanted another story set in another TOTF timeline. All this while real life tragedies took place in the creators life with the death of The creators father. The EMBERS storyline would have a rebellion of Faeries in the not so distant future ﬁghting against vampire cities. Many real life changes took place and this kept Afterlight sequel and thus the series from continuing. But 70% of the material was still shot and can be enjoyed as still images. The Embers development would eventually but put away. Gallo, Sadia, Daysta, and Ani were developed during this time.
In 2004, Joseph moved to Los Angeles with the idea to recreate mythological archetypes in modern ways that reﬂected our current 21st century mentality, and Time of the Faeries was born. Using photography and self taught photoshop techniques, his goal was to bring reality to fantasy in a series now known as “Generations”. Every year or so we would work with new models and focus on evolving new ideas. It was an art project that seemed to inspire anyone who joined up. Faeries would represent chaos, magic, possibilities, youth, sometimes even tragic reﬂections of those things.
While it may appear to some that these images are only “Pretty girls with wings”, the performance and reality behind them are anything but simple. Come for the imagery, stay for what you see when you look into their eyes.
Angels : represent Dogma, order, strength and power, corporate control and religion limitations. But also in that spirit there would be Angels who would defy their kin and rebel, fall from earth sacriﬁcing who they are into Fallen Nephilim.
Vampires : always the entitled, the hurt, the broken who only saw the world for what they could take. They were hungry with a hole within that could never be ﬁlled. These traits are humanity incarnate. Its fears, its pain, its beauty.
And as time went on, a full scale 10,000 year story arc ﬁlled with characters and life was formed. Over 8 generations of models and creative cycles, Time of the Faeries was forged into prints, art books, and novels.
Here on jcorsentino.com, we separated TOTF into each Generation, "GEN", and the best representations of them. Welcome to Time of the Faeries created by Joseph Corsentino.
