Sometimes stumble, get up, move forward, ignore the skinned knees and keep walking again. Momentum and heart a substitute for tattered wings. I fly with my feet. (June 2010)

With the right photographer some phenomenal work can come out of the collaboration and I had a fantastic photographer to work with. This was his first time working with someone my size and he found himself fascinated watching the muscles at play under my skin as I would move around the studio.

So glad you like!! Sorry I've been being such a stranger lately; I'm a wee tad overwhelmed with stuff right now. I also think my emails may not have been getting to you. I'm probably in your spam bucket. :)

Perhaps it's my love of all things monochrome, but I like the image better in black and white. That being said, this is striking. I *still* can't figure out how the wings are attached, and your words beneath are absolutely perfect as accompaniment.

The wings were held on with monofilament fishing line that I photoshopped out. :)

I'm glad you like it. Thank you!

Of all the photos I have saved, I keep coming back to this one. It's just breathtaking! The composition, the model, the emotion, the Black and White def works the best although I like the blue tint.
Just amazing :D

I wonder what this would look like if it was, say a woman who overly prides herself with her outword beauty. Ie maybe lots of plastic surgery in otherwords, i believe the viewer assumes her sin is "gluttony" which is a" sin" that is easily conveyed because of its outword appearance. I am curious if the viewer would have the same reaction to a woman who's "sin" isn't as outwordly visible unless maybe it was excessive plastic surgery for example, or would the viewer think the woman was a "victim" rather than a "sinner". Certainly each viewer has there own interpretation based on our own experiences so I may just be throwing my "bias" toward the photo. Regardless, in my opinion it is a phenominal picture, clearly a conversational piece. Great work!

Interesting idea - certainly everyone interprets things based on their own world views. For example, I don't know what "sin" is (I don't recognize the concept) but I think that "too much plastic surgery" is "any" :D
