I had been thinking of this photo of mine and the relationship between human and nature, and I've been thinking of this genius picture that Miss Aniela did for a while now. Both of these thoughts went into the inspiration for this image. I was really craving a dark fairytale, and this for me solidified what I had in my mind. I love being able to create these types of images as self-portraits so that I can really live in a beautiful nightmare (though sometimes happy I can go back to safe life :P).
The dress was made by Anastasia Every, and my friend KD assisted by providing her lovely hands for this shot.
I've also announced new workshop dates for Los Angeles, Wilmington NC, Boston, Toronto, and Chicago. Dates will be announced in the coming weeks for my international trip to the UK as well as Portland (July/August).
Also, today is the last day to submit to the January contest, theme is rebirth/new beginnings :)
