I lit her with moon light to match her soul and we spoke on how each line of Verlaine resonated between us. She is a moonlit landscape and a mirror of my own heart. Cool shadows fill quiet places and the lightly lit curves where meadows meet mountains dance in the distance.
Your soul is a delicate landscape
Where roam charming masks and bergamasques
Playing the lute and dancing and seeming almost
Sad under their whimsical disguises.
While singing in a minor key
Of victorious love and easy life
They don't seem to believe in their happiness
And their song mingles with the moonlight,
With the sad and beautiful moonlight,
Which makes the birds in the trees dream
And sob with ecstasy the water streams,
The great slim water streams among the marbles.
Captured with Nikon D800 and Sigma 24-70 lens and two profoto flashes. The backdrop and the textures are custom-painted by me. All the blankets and fabrics I use in the Aria Collection I get from the local fabric store. I have a huge pile of them now.
The abstractions in the Aria's are all placed on a fibonacci curve and are intentional. In Clair de Lune I decided not to pull an abstraction from the body. Instead, I painted a copy of the wing tattoos and lifted them off her back.
