Artwork by Neo Samo
I had the opportunity to be in front of the lens as a model for a couple of years. I collaborated with one photographer by the name of Neo Samo a few times, one of which was for a body paint series called Noir Black (yes, I know the meaning is “Black Black”). We captured one image that was visually stunning. It had garnered so much buzz where a woman’s shelter and an art aficionado wanted prints of the image to grace their walls.
Well, the last photo shoot I had with him, Neo Samo gifted me with a print of my own to hang up on my walls. I was truly amazed and humbled by the kind gesture.
Here is the image in question. I had a blast creating this, even though the paint was extremely hard to wash off. lol
