Daily Deviation

Given 2011-12-21
The artist has a rather eclectic gallery exploring a contrast between portrait and object but this is the piece that really struck me as being a powerful compliment of both light and bright.

This piece escapes words for me to use to help describe it to someone who hasn't seen it. Out there, there are some photographers that take pictures of people in glamour shots.. some in self portraits... some even go as far as to try surrealism to be daring. This goes beyond surrealism, and this is the definition of daring. The color combination is what has me captivated. I love the brightness of the red and green, it really contrasts the photo well. Also, atop the superb usage of color.. the pose and model themselves are extraordinarily amazing. It's not everyday you can find a perfect model for a photo, so some take the liberty out of their days to try using themselves. You, my friend have a very photogenic face and a PERFECT idea. You should be the posterchild for photography, because this is that and much much more. Great work, keep it up.
What do you think?

I like that most of the pieces in this series have attitude, unlike most other cutesy fruit inspired pictures. You made fruits and bright colors bad ass. I can't find my apple :c

This is probably my favorite, if not, one of my favorites in your Tutti Frutti Collection. The red and green contast very well on the color wheel and it looks very fresh, fierce and crisp all at once. I can see you modeling in magazines :) Magnificent work.

The curl of your lip is AMAZING. Turns a really cool idea into a self-portrait with a kick. Perfect.

Is your hair blonde? Because in your other pictures, you have different coloured hair. And it mustve sucked to dye your hair different colours if you had to lol
