vox03 asked: How aware of your facial expression are you when being photographed? Is it your intention to project something emotional in that fashion, or are you simply waiting?
As an art model, it is certainly my duty to be aware of what I am portraying in an image emotionally, and it is extremely important for me to find a place of intensity, emotion, or calm, depending on the aim of the collaboration. To me, modeling would be utterly meaningless if it wasn’t for my ability to articulate the energy and emotionality in body language/expression that becomes heightened in a good collaboration, particularly with an artist I’m more close to emotionally. I always try to push my vulnerabilities and strengths in front of the lens. However, sometime I am surprised by what I see in the final image. Art can be transformative, and will often reveal parts of me that I was not aware of prior.
