Jen was a friend of mine who posed for a commission several years ago. Although a person with a good heart, alcoholism ultimately claimed her life about a year ago. As far as I know she is the only model for my art to have passed away. We hadn’t spoken for several years, but I always look at this particular photograph from our session with a sense of sadness. Really an outtake, taken at a moment of humor that so often happens in my shoots, I look at this now and, visually, it takes on a different meaning- one of sadness, hopelessness and loneliness. It has revealed itself to be the most meaningful image from my shoot with Jen. Miss you, my friend.
