Revealing the treasure of a Cocoon




Dedicated to Severin.
It is part of a series but stands on its own. The other images are not selfportraits (except of one more blurry one) and can be found later on my Website
I hope you like it and are not too bored by its simpleness. I tried hard to convey a certain feeling and hope I capured it..

This is a great photo. I particularly love the slight part of the lips. I didn't necessarally make the cocoon connotation, but the hair seems very animated, or alive. You have an excellent eye and great models.

Nothing comes to my mind to describe this one.
I'm in complete awe... This photo is just beautiful. The colors, the tones, the movement and the stillness of the photo.

I can only say that is a great, great photo!

Excelent Work.

This is a wonderful photo. I use it as my wallpaper ever since I found it. You look beautiful, that beautiful I can't describe with words. It's like all what stands for womanhood is included in this shot. It reminds me to wonderful nights and mornings, to wonderful girls I met. Thank you so much for it!

i like the simplicity. The completely black background makes it clear.. like you know something and there's nothing else that can stop you from believing it. or not believing it.
