It's time to say something, Julia; much too long I've been a silent admirer of your work. Now I can't keep my mouth shut for any longer, and first of all I'd like to repeat one thing I'm absolutely sure of: You're one of those beautiful beings who are as good in front of as behind the camera, and therefore I wish to see you more often as a model or in self-portraits. Here you decided to create your vision behind the camera, and you made this beautiful girl called Tess shine even more in clothes that became a second skin, everything captured in a scenery that's charming her natural and divine beauty (some things always come together as one). dirt and bones is a great title for a mesmerizing picture, and you're an original and inspiring artist like no other in the world.
thank you beau! you inspire me to create even more with the words you write. i would love to take self portraits more often one day, im just building myself up inside to actually go and do it as i am fighting some personal things at the moment that would be scary to be seen on camera and shown to the rest of the world. but maybe that's the beauty of self portraiture, i should expose the things i am most scared about exposing about myself; be vulnerable but honest. rather than feeling safe and dishonest.
Whatever you do - and whatever you did in photography - there's nothing but honesty right from the start. You feel what you're doing, and you're so much into your shots that an essential part of you is in every picture you take, and so even your models somehow get the eyes of yourself. You are beautiful to the core.
