Without Words by larafairie Without Words by larafairie

(hair, make-up, styling, idea, photography & post processing by me. I also made the top, which I'm quite proud of!).
It's so great to get back into doing some creative self-portraiture after a long peroid of time, I can finally release some creative energy.

Oh I love the pose, very glamourous.
Also just noticed the end note, so to conform, could I use this as drawing practice. I'll not be postin it anywhere.

I do love this total picture, the attitude and all. If I use a picture, I always ask permission first. I have a vamp character on a online game that I like to change up. I usually add my family tat and tattoo
the eyes to stay in with the original picture. Would you give permission for this?

Absolutely stunning! The contrast between the black of your clothing and the white of your skin is beautiful and your makeup is amazing.

For the background, did you shoot against a light black then add the scratches in post?

Feel sorry for you having so much idiots posting comments under your art that relates in no such way what so ever to the actual photograph.
Beautiful piece btw :) Very moody. Love the tapey type texture ;D'

Very nice.
ChaunceyMcdonnis Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010
I really like the mood of the photograph. the subject has this piercing, confronting sensuality, and it feels really intimate. It reminds me of Richard Avedon, his portraits have this feel to it, like a perfect dance with mood, lighting, and the subject engaging with the camera that makes it seem like there is no camera. Beautiful work.

Hopefully you'll get this message soon, but I want you to know that somebody used this picture for the cover of their book.


I don't know if you gave them permission or what, but I saw this book and was like, wtf?

Hi Lara,
I'm a big fan of your work, and just wanted to let you know.. I was walking through a book store the other day and saw a book called " Vampire a Go-Go" by Victor Gischler. It had one of your images on the front cover.
Your self portrait "Without Words" was used. I scanned through the book, but didn't notice a credit for you.
Just thought you should know. I also commented on this on your facebook group page, as I'm not sure if you actually read all of these.
larafairie Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2009  Professional Photographer
They commissioned me a while back.. but quite suprised there was no credit inside as I did ask :)
