As in the other comments, the word "striking" comes to my mind. I am arrested by the image, especially by the balance of eyes, mask, beads, hood, hands, rings. Were you suggesting anything religious?

I am a hypno junkie, so I like anything to do with the subject, but this on really caught my attention. Keep up the good work.

Thank you very much for your comment. I'm interested by all the different religions and everything connected with it (traditions, clothes, colors, rituals, symbols, history...). For this picture I was probably influenced in an unconscious way by images of Pietas I saw in French churches and on the web. But in general I'm more interested by spiritual than religious things. This image is a mix between a lot of different subjects: for the fashion style (religious/modern/rebel/strangeness).

I'm also interested by hypnosis. It's a fascinating subject for a photographer. There's another dimension here: what is the part of hypnosis involved when you're falling in love with someone else.
How could you define to be a "hypno junkie"?

It's a great luck to work with Marta, she's my only model and I'm her only photographer, and she's my woman. I think that we're a great team ! ;-)
