Generally I don't post entire series of photos in my gallery on DA. It also occurs to me that this entire set will probably be lost on the bulk of viewers trawling for nudy pics. So be it.
"Because I Love You" is a series of photos that explores the darker side of passion, and all the emotion that ultimately drives us to commit self destructive acts in the name of love. It is also an evolution of sorts in my work, attempting to grasp something elusive through the lens. On a technical level it is extremely basic, even a step back from the polish I prefer in my imagery. But this is not about making pretty pictures. It's about capturing something that lies within all of us, however we choose to express it.
Raichel, the model in this series, brought something deep and personal to every shot. The tears and pain are real.
