    Wow. Now thats a face… The short hair thing really is amazing. Nothing androgynous here.

    perfection.

    By the way, such a fan. I don’t follow twitter, most media sites, or any other blogs, but your photography and eye are stunning.

    Thank you for your work

    Add me to the chorus of those saying “Wow.”
    She’s stunning.
    And I love the tension between the minimalism (hair, brows, and dress) and the adornment (ink and lip ring).

    Normally I hate such tiny eyebrows, but she is so powerful and beautiful that I could forgive her anything!
    Once again thanks for showing the million ways to be beautiful.

    Love this look. I always admire peoples confidence when they have sleeves or when they dress original as I am pretty much as *vanilla as they come when it comes to my style.

    My. God. Love.
    I can imagine especially in Barcelona where most women have long hair and are ultra-feminine, she still holds her own being strikingly gorgeous.

    I really like the contrast between her strong, powerful look and the delicate and subtle flowers, barely noticeable in the background. Very interesting shot

    The girl looks like het tattoo; like a beautiful art venetian mask (?), rebellious, unique and very cool

    I think tattoos look horrible in men and women.

    Super images, great capture, love her confidence in front of the camera, great bone structure, she has complimented it well with her hairstyle and body art. Black & white really suits this image.

    really looks like Barcelona! …where every waiter’s got tattoos….. and percings and… I love it. I’ve lived there for a while some years ago, and I am lucky enough to go there every year. I love it more and more. ;)

    Could I do this, I wonder? But I smile more than a sculpture does, and she looks so vulnerable. This is a look for a life and I would wear it for a night, only that. She is lovely.

    Such an intense portait!
    So full of contrasts: the “feminin” flowers in the background and the classic and beautiful proportions of the face are set against the tough tatoos, hair cut and piercings; the defiant, mysterious and sensual expression together with the elegant black dress lead a film noir glamour that is contrasted by the presence of the innocuous and soft cappuccino.

    I am very moved by this picture, thank you Scott for sharing this wonderful shotd with us. Inspiring.

    I’m in with “wow” crowd… Pictorially, I love how her portrait is in harmony with the portrait tat on her left arm.

    Looking at the tattoos on her arm I’d say that she is into mystery and another ideal of feminist. Bravo!

    Mostly I have a funny comment, because most of your pictures are showing a scene in live. But this time I can just say… how beautiful is that? Just gorgeous… no clue, if its the pic or the girl… probably both! Love it!
