Sookie Sirene - Hotel Blues (Bathroom)

Nothing to add to what I've so often written on this blog. Sookie Sirene's self-portraits are among the most fascinating and beautiful series ever done and this recent one (shot in an hotel's bathroom but there are also pictures of her on the bed, I found them less interesting) is surely one of the best. Don't know why where most fail to produce any emotional arise, she succeeds. Everything in her contributes to this success (her carnation, her tattoo, her face, her expression, her postures). Maybe this is made with a lot of inner suffering and anguish and fear and melancholy, but the result is strangely not so much an elegy than a chant to life and sensuality. Her tumblr site here. Share and help, she deserves it.
