    a strangely powerful picture. On the fashion side, I like the two different greys layered.

    Amazing picture, what an incredible looking woman.
    I’ve grown to love grey, which is pretty unusual, since I love colour, but there is such a smoky, romantic quality about it: http://natashafatah.blogspot.ca/2011/12/fade-to-grey.html

    This image is so striking. One of your best ever. She has the fierce attitude of an LA cholo.

    Wow, how inspiring ! That intense light effect ! You really tend to catch the right moment since a few weeks. I mean, you did before, but there we have more and more amazingly interesting photographs, that are visualy powerfull, more than just vashion reviews. And this character is, well, very strong. I hope what I said makes sens in english.

    I’m glad she draped her puffy jacket like that…her strength would have been obscured otherwise.

    Wow! This is the first picture that prompted me to actually comment. I love all your pictures but there’s something about the attitude and the light and the whole composition that just knocked me breathless. Gorgeous!

    If you look closely, you’ll see she has no eyebrow.

    April 3, 2012 at 9:30 am

    The absence of her eye-brows did not become apparent to me until I looked at her the second time. I love it that people are brave enough to experiment with their bodies in the society of our times.

    Superb lighting. That and her defiant expression make this a really powerful portrait. Like others, I didn’t notice she had no eyebrows until I looked a second time.

    She looks like everything my father forbade me to look like in the early 70′s when I plucked my eyebrows at the young age of thirteen to near oblivion as done by this woman in this photograph. Even her chin up no makeup rebellious pose was part of what was deemed inappropriate lest you be taken for some sort of street thug urchin. When I first saw the photograph I laughed out of sheer recognition. How curious that I should find what looks like a 70′s East Los Angeles chola queen in training posted to “The Sartorialist” as inspiration. On Fifth Avenue in good lighting no less.

    I didn’t realize for the first minute of looking at this that she was missing eyebrows! I guess it’s because shes so strikingly beautiful.

    Many girls in my neighborhood are shaving off their eyebrows with these razors that are sold near the cash register of just about every dollar store. Shaving your eyebrows makes it easier to pencil them in. I think my mom did the same back in the 50′s!

    Like the threatening atmosphere you captured. The subject’s neck is striking and her look, sans eyebrows, is a little on the scary side. Very moody. Do I want to use the word “vampiric”?

    Looks like she’s won a big fight which costed her and now she is triumphant, but hurt.

    It’s a bit scary. Especially with this extrraordinary light.

    not so into the bleached eyebrows. Its just not something that humans can pull off. She is beautiful though bleached eyebrows aside.

    This is amazing, I actually met this girl a couple of weeks ago and she’s a very nice and sweet person to talk to, it was nice to find someone like that in these my first few months in this city.
    Btw: her eyebrows are simply beautiful

    How funny all the comments; no one sees the cultural factors this photo represents. Growing up, all the very tough, gang-allied young women in East LA shaved their eyebrows and wore boys’ clothing. They were after an iconic look that spoke of their past, their identities and their willingness to scoff at authority and convention. While this photo made me smile in recognition, it also startled me to realize that societal conditions for our urban women of color have not changed from 1965.
