Never Say Never

I didn't have enough words to express the emotions and complexities of these shots. They are sexual, soft, haunting, and stark. I turn to a poem I really enjoy to describe the spirit of the women.

Excerpt from: Phenomenal Woman

"Men themselves have wondered

What they see in me.

They try so much

But they can't touch

My inner mystery.

When I try to show them

They say they still can't see.

I say,

It's in the arch of my back,

The sun of my smile,

The ride of my breasts,

The grace of my style.

I'm a woman


Phenomenal woman,

That's me."

-Maya Angelou

    A very little suggestion about sex, is more mysterious, a deeper meaning, hiding behind masks our identity, and perhaps also untold sexual desires, etc... and finally I can see your point. Regardless, love it, voted!
