The Murder of Sonia Raikkonen


This is a murder mystery. The story is about a young Finnish tourist is found in a public garden in Pune. It looks like a case of brutal rape and murder, but Senior Inspector Saralkar and PSI Motkar find themselves probing further delving deeper.

In this project, we have to select any book and re-design the book cover for it with only using photographs.

Original book cover:

I decided to go for the idea of blood and the white sandal, I did some experiments by placing the sandanl in different angles and blood dripping on it. I also place the sandal on grass and spill some red paint and highlighted only the blood part as in the story the body of the finnish tourist was found in the garden. And in some photos I also experimeneted with the lights. As the story itself the mystery I tried to create that into my photos. Even in one of them I tried combination of red and white lights- red for the blood and white for the sandal.
