josephine baker – Self portrait series

A study of illusion and reality, parody, humour and humanity

Here is a study of Josephine Baker, what I can tell you is that my impression was of a woman who was a bombshell. Posing here, I found myself as a hefty, native, voluptuous tigress with an immense derrière.  Yet this was a woman that realized at a early stage that men were capable of deceit. On stage, she had a presence which could captivate an audience with a act that in most cases, she was completely nude, her breast led the way to her fame. Paris felt safe from all the intrigue, from all the debauchery and uttered unkindness said to a human being.

She was an angelic angel, her heart was torn by her many disappointments.
