Creepy Girls (7): Girls on the Floor in the Corner

In macabre photos, girls are sometimes placed on the floor…

…or in the corner…

or on the floor in the corner.

Maybe there’s something about our childhood images (memories?) of being sent to stand or sit in the corner… a particularly embarrassing and powerless position in which to be put…

…especially by someone older, larger and stronger… and often, someone you’re supposed to love… and who is supposed to love and protect you.

Whatever the reason, these images play on our most basic feelings of humiliation, guilt, shame and self-loathing.

And yes, fear.
