I think the only reaction to these images should be one long dramatic gasp, followed by numerous adjectives. The incredibly talented photographer, Brooke Shaden, has kindly let me feature her work on my blog, and all I can say is a big thank you! Isn't her photography just brilliant? I particularly love the way it's explained in her 'about' section on her website:

Brooke has been said to encapsulate a new way of creating imagery for our time and has "...dramatically restated a new photographic feminist agenda for the 21st century." Her use of the square format and heavy texture work to create a painterly aesthetic is redefining the boundaries of photography. With these tools at hand, she creates new worlds through her images.

If I could write as well as she creates images, I will die a happy woman. To view more of her work, visit her website and flickr account (and leave her a nice comment, or better yet, sponsor her as she totally deserves it).

Two more lovely things to note:

: : Don't forget to enter my giveaway as I've extended the deadline to this Friday due to the problem with deleted comments by blogger last week

: : Thank you so much to those of you who responded to my previous post on writing. I've been so moved and humbled by your thoughtful comments and willingness to share your thoughts - please keep the comments coming on this post, I'm enjoying reading them.
