A woman sits on the floor holding her knees to her chest. She faces a wall, her naked back towards the camera. The skin on her back is cracked and peeled like old paintwork.

Damaged

 

Damaged

We are all damaged in some way. No one journeys life unscathed. Look closer. Be present. Be kind.

Construction:

Nikon D700, 50mm lens, f4, 1/60, ISO 500. This image was a test shot for ‘Voices’. The floor boards are a laminate pallet laid out on my bedroom floor. The lightening was too directional for the image I wanted in “Voices’, but I loved the atmosphere and the pose. This was a simple edit in Photoshop, using curves to change tones and emphasis the light and dark. I added different textures to the background and the subject to create the ‘damaged’ effect.
