Nice photography, although deceptive. There is more backside than back here.
As far as the scars comment, while I am not a promoter of self injury, they serve in a sense the same as a beauty mark. A small imperfection on what is otherwise pretty flawless. An interesting question, do the scars enhance her beauty more, or does her otherwise (reasonably)flawless skin put more emphasis on the scars.
We've all got self-inflicted scars. Some are just more obvious than others. Doesn't, in any way, detract from her physical beauty. And, as for her inner beauty, only those who really know her can speak to that. My guess is, all things considered, she's got a story that would be worth hearing.
Great pic, in any event. And, yes, she has a glorious derriere!
That is your opinion. Scars like that tell a story and show you who this person is. Photography isn't about recording just perfectioin but to capture every detail about your subject. Are we supposed to hide these things from the world? Everything about this person makes her beautiful.
totally agree, scars in the outside and the inside are marks of wath we've lived, they don't define us, but they show a part of us that confronted something important, and they show how we kept going, and carry them as trophys of victory
I don't think scares like that show you who the person is or tell a story, cutting the arms has always been associated with a want for attention or cry out for help. When the problem is real most self harmer's do it somewhere people can't see and are ashamed of it, those are the people who's scares have meaning.
A lot of people who self-injure do it as a way to calm their emotional suffering. It's a misconception that everyone who self-injures does it for attention, even if it's on visible parts of the body. As someone who has struggled with it in the past, believe me, cutting your arms doesn't always mean you want attention.
But whatever the reason, there's always a story behind it, and I think it's really beautiful and powerful to capture that in a photograph.
