First of all, I really appreciate your work. your photos are really awesome. i'm not photographer, but I share your feeling and I think that you show very well this feeling from your models into your photos.
Now I would like to ask you for the permission to use this picture as basis of a digital painting for the illustration of a Bulgarian poem that talks about a soul lost somewhere between heaven and hell and who must find a way to save themselve.
Here is the english translation of this poem:
Being at the bottom of the Inferno
Full of utmost woe and tribulation
Out of the burning ember of sorrow
Weave your own ladder to get out
Being smashed pathless in a maze and muddle
Walled in between four walls
From all your dead paths
Carve a new one to go alone
A vicious hardship is life’s puzzle
Crucifying human souls
Having lost everything not losing thy self
Is the only possible solution
(sorry if the translation gives not the full idea of what the peom means, my english is not the best...)
I would be very happy and honored if you allow me to work with this picture.
Thanks in advance for your answer.
