How can you be so mean to someone so meaningless?

These pictures are by Tim Burton’s long time still photographer Mary Ellen Mark. An amazingly gifted documentary photographer, she always frames Burton’s movies like they’re plays, capturing the art of movie making more than the suspended disbelief that the characters are being photographed within their world. This unique style gives his characters a gravitas that is sorely missing from a lot of film still photography.

The final thing we must recognize is the costumes, designed by another of Tim Burton’s long time collaborators, Oscar winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. All of the dresses in this movie are beautiful, but the final dress that Christina Ricci wears is an iconic moment in Tim Burton’s films. West uses Burton’s signature black and white stripes and molds them through a basque, bustle, ruffled edges and full skirt. In terms of goth-dom, it’s like the Shroud of Turin.
