  1. These really are breathtaking

  2. very hot.

  3. Jealous much?

  4. Would it have been so bad if someone else had conceived and executed it, and she was just a model?

    “they are always available for themselves” probably the no1 reason many of us resort to self portraits.

  9. Disturbing indeed. I think I like them.

    While I love all, or most of these, her photoshop skills are quite lacking to be considered “breathtaking.” She’s lovely, the creativity is as well. But looking into the technique of some of them are disappointing. Like the candle one, I really love the image but the wax is so out of place and clearly added in after the fact, it leaves an unsatisfied feeling..

  11. It’s amazing what you can do with a little PhotoShop experience…


  13. Is creative, but not beautiful

  14. I see. That makes much more sense. Thank you for enlightening me. These shots are beautiful, and thinking about them in that light makes them even more so.

  15. Yes, you are wrong. To achieve these photos you pre-focus your camera on a tripod, set a timer, and there you go.

  16. How? They’re well thought out, competently executed, and fun to look at. People express themselves in different ways and I don’t see how this is any different than people posting their thoughts online.

  17. These are externalizations of inner thoughts. And disregarding any meaning to these photos, you can’t see how any of these are art? None of these photos are visually pleasing to you in any way? I feel sorry for you.

  18. Too cool…

  19. Her vision is unreal. These are beautiful.

  20. this is so beautiful….breathtaking…

    Amazing Work !!!

  22. VERY VERY CREATIVE!!! keep up the good work

  23. lol wow this is like so bad, like so much ego, wow.

  24. If this is creative or artistic then I’ll be the first to admit I will never understand art or creativity. What about suicide, the act, the notion, or the satirizing of it provides a platform for creativity or artistic expression? I daresay any man or woman who has lost any person of any considerable significance in their own life to suicide would attempt to cheapen or devalue it by creating a photograph like this. If this is art, you can keep it.

  25. She has a great future ….

  26. Or she used a tripod and a timer, perhaps.

  27. These are beyond words, very touched

  28. How is this narcissistic? Many artists chose to create self portraits simply because they know their vision and they are always available for themselves, so they don’t need another model to make art.

    And I don’t know what’s wrong with being in love with yourself. That’s not the point of her art, but self-love isn’t a bad thing.

  29. How are these self portraits? Someone else obviously shot them, or am I wrong?

  30. And disturbing…

  31. Some are very artistic, some are not. But I like the one with the house, reminds me of Louise Bourgeois

  32. This woman is in love with herself. But narcisism couln´t interfere with creativity.

  33. Narcisism couldn´t interfiere with creativity. This woman is in love with herself.

  34. fantastically amazing, superb imagination

  35. Amazing photos…love your post!Thank you!

  36. Loved it! Keep the vision!

  37. this is fantastic…..very inspired artist

  38. this is beyond amazing! keep on rocking on with life you inspiration, amazing person, you! 😀
