i totally agree, beautiful pictures, they have the atmosphere of a good tv commercial for an italian perfume.. i can just imagine a soft feminine voice with a little foreign accent whispering “roma….”
but seriously, i feel a little uncomfortable about glorifying the looks of this woman – a woman that has been working out so hard she looks severly emaciated. i work out myself, and i certainly like to maintain sculpted arms and abs and so on, but having been anorexic years ago, i find these pictures slightly scary and dangerous. especially as this woman is not a model.
i’m wondering if you occasionally crave spontaenity-it is, after all, one thing to stop and get a person to pose in his/her outfit, and another to capture someone in his/her element, unaware and radiant.
when attempting this capture, one is actively appreciating the beauty of photographer.as Karl Lagerfeld explains–’i like photography because its all about the moment.. you can’t re-create it’
The femininity in the second photo is incredible, from her hair, jaw, shoulder, arm, breast down to her backside. It s exagerated by her pose in the first photo which to me looks quite masculine in a sprinters way. Its all revealed through a delicate dress. Great!
