I’ve often wondered what craps table our souls stand around in the process that decides where we will come into this Earth. Who will our parents be? Will we be born into the cozy bosom of extraordinary opulence or confined to the deepest despair of extreme poverty? Who will be blessed with great health and who will succumb to the afflictions of the most horrific diseases? Will our parents and siblings be taken from us early or will we be blessed to hand our great grandparents our babies on their first birthdays? Will our families be torn apart by the nightmare that is war or will we grow in times of peace? Normally, Steve McCurry’s genius photograph of that beautiful yet terrorized Afghan girl he photographed for National Geographic comes to mind… What if that girl had been born to Saudi royalty? What if she had been the daughter of a Wall Street business tycoon? What if only a middle class Dutch girl in a humble but beautifully warm and loving home in Holland? Is it solely a crap shoot, or are we here to learn lessons only the saddest and most frightening of life’s occurrences can teach? Model Kelly Harman, along with her alluring eyes, and masterful makeup artist Jill Oscar-Salles helped me explore an attempt at a recreate of an image I have always admired, but with a woman who had never felt the pain and torture of a life all but destroyed by war.
