alternative title: Coming out of the closet, but after a long meditation, i just realized that ivory was a better title. Model: Priscilla Pomeroy visit her at www.priscillapomeroy.com/
When I saw this in my inbox, I almost squealed. Not very ladylike, I know, but look at the sepia, look at the clarity and look most of all at the beautiful location this was shot at, all the while trying not to ignore the completely peaceful look on the poor woman's face - overall, incredibly done. coming out of the closet by *Lastlostboy (

A great concept and a great achievement. The subject is very intense, the light and sepia tones add a fantastic dramatic atmosphere. The mise-en-scčne and the composition are very good. Congrats for the DD entirely deserved.

I applaud your composition, obvious talent, and attention to detail. Subject matter no so much.
Violence toward women and murder of women should not be revered, sexualized, or glamorized in any way, especially considering the second class status of the gender in a disgustingly large portion of this world. Depicting such a topic as an art form to be praised trivializes the real world situations of the suffering.
You are clearly free to do as you will, I just ask that you please think carefully before doing so.
yeah, in fact i think i have to be a little more obvious that im not agree with women beaten up to death. And what i wanted to do is precisely that, and im totally surprised by the reaction of people to this photo. How they can see beauty in death is something we must be afraid of. How people just looking at a good composition and lightning forget about the message. And they never think about: hey this is terribly wrong! Im glad someone felt bad about it, That was the point. Thanks for your comment
Wow. This is a GREAT picture. Your work is terrific. Great technical skills, almost literary ambiance, great ideas. Love your journal entry about Mexicans and pop culture, too. The artist I most often collaborate with in the mainstream world, and one of my best friends, is Mexican. I met him in a comic shop, and we go endlessly back and forth on pop culture all the time! steve noir
