Sea of Imagination by lovelizzie
Sea of Imagination
Something from my old shoot in...dang like 2012 or something. It's the same shoot which got me my first Daily Deviation. It's a flash from the past since I have nothing new to share. It was an overlooked gem in the pile of awesome. Yes, awesome book. Ouuuu.

I mean I had to borrow like 100 extra books from the library ON TOP of my already enormous book collection to make a true mountain of books to sit on. Or maybe it's a throne. A throne of books. Excellent either way!

Self-portrait by Lizzie

I hate and I love. Perhaps you ask why I do this?
I do not know, but I feel it happen and I am torn apart.

Self 013 Monochrome by phydeau
There is something perfect and honest about an imperfect body. Granted, I take advantage of this more than most, but it's fantastic to see a male nude photographer stepping out of his comfort zone and stepping in front of the camera. Only the self-portrait artist knows how the model feels and simultaneously respects them and is mystified by their bravery.

There's something stark and honest about this photo in the black and white perspective. The color was good, warm and bright - but the body is more honest in black and white, I think. You see all the flaws and all the character built into a body. The shadows and highlights are a perfect mirror to how we are as people too. All good self-portraits are a capture of the photographer. Only great ones capture the spirit too. This does an excellent job at both.

In the time I've know phydeau, he's been supportive of other photographers learning the craft and a wonderful friend. It would be my privilege to one day work with him as a model and a photographer. It's not just because of his self-portrait, but it does embody all the things which I consider as making him an excellent photographer and addition to the dA community.

The above photo pretty accurately describes how I feel most days.

I need to move overseas. Everyone knows accents make a man more attractive.

Lizzie, a mere thank you for the :+fav: seems very inadequate after reading your journal entry. You are a very brave young lady and I hope that you keep fighting the disease with all your wonderful soul. Blessings and healing thoughts, Steve

Thank you Steve. I'm trying to keep reminding myself, "I am a soul with a body. It's not a perfect body but it's what I have for this soul. I am not my body."
