accidental El Greco
the color photo here reminds me of the paintings by El Greco. if you are not familiar with him, i will share with you that most of the people in his work take the subtle shape of a flame... it is symbolic of the spirit, and it is a beautiful way to represent the human being (in my opinion.) this mother of a client of mine struck that pose most likely without being aware of the historical art figures tendency; perfect "accident." besides that, i am quite fond of her for the lines on her face, as they tell the world, "i am real."
