I love the contrast of light and dark in this photo. I also love the symmetry that the shadow creates (a line down the middle of her face) Also, I love close ups on emotion, this draws in the audience and makes them feel the emotion.
This fashion illustration by Agnes Cecile is more vibrant and experiments with colour. It shows variation and individuality! It could be a way of experimenting with colour for garments as a colour chart http://www.thestylesparrow.com
Congo-born, France-based artist Olivier de Sagazan integrates painting, photography, sculpture and performance into a very unique hybrid practice! His existential performance series, "Transfiguration," involves the artist building layers of clay and paint onto his face and body and then shedding them to reveal "an animalistic human who is seeking to break away from the physical world."
