This is the most gorgeous photograph I have seen on your blog to date. What an image. I love to look at your blog daily and see what’s out there and what people like/dislike – keep up the good work! and thank you.
i love this girl. on the one hand she looks sooo ethnically asian that there’s almost an old-world provincialism about her, but on the other hand she’s dressed so well and has such a look of power that only the modern global woman can have. that dichotomy, plus the amazing lighting, makes for one amazing photograph.
It does have the quality that is so sought-after in formal portraits and photoshoots. But it goes beyond most of today’s polished, photoshopped images. You could feel the texture of her clothes, the warmth of her skin. You could let her hair loose and breathe in. While I’ll never be the first to embrace the drama that black and red create, they seem almost fragile in this photo. And I love it. I love it. As much as I believe in luck, I believe in the ‘eye’ and skill. This shows both, a keen eye and superior skill.
I absolutely love this, down to the bell in her hair. For me the photo really evokes the Peruvian Andes, because I’m reminded of the bold colors and geometric prints there…who knew black and red stripes could be made so evocative? I think it’s the casual addition of the scarf, which should clash but doesn’t, that cinches it for me. Both the woman and the photograph itself are beautiful and inspiring. Bravo!
this is actually me. i had no idea i was being photographed, it was a friend who told me she saw my picutre here. that time i was taking pictures at a fashion show for a korean magazine. i am an artist from paris.
