White Swan 1 by ~gesmodel is "Very eye-catching and unsettling, but so much more," in the words of ian-x. The photographer is quite a talent, though sadly much of his gallery is no longer on deviantART. This image is the model's submission to dA, but it again highlights the act of collaboration that is inherent in photography. The photographer cannot work without a subject that exists in the world for he or she to interpret into a still image. The model is as much the medium as the camera is, and in this image, she captures the gesture in a really genuine way that makes the image sincere, believable, and haunting.

I will admit to you that when I first glanced at this piece, I did not "like" reminds me of how I felt after my car accident. Disfigured, ashamed, wanting to hide...but although this doesn't appeal to me in an esthetic sense, it punched me in the face with its emotional rawness. A bit too close for comfort, if you catch my meaning=) Very impressive!
