So, these portraits depict the positive side of the sin? Or a sin turned beneficial? Or both the good and the bad about the sin? As it seems that most of the models are dear to you...

Thank you Viktoria

I was intending to just do 1 Mardi Gras costume as a technical exercise, with one of my favorite muses. Then slowly it just exploded into the 7 sins. Each woman is close and special to me, in fact the most beautiful women to me are never found in a magazine or TV but people I really know as close friends.

They all have a certain aspect of the sin they were chosen to be the model. Yet they (as I too believe) see this not as a judgement of their character, but an honest understanding of the other aspects of their personalities.

Why not? Sometimes our greatest virtues and greatest sins have the same root :)

Thanks Rebecca

My model for this work is a feisty young lady, and I respect her fighting spirit to turn what was a tragedy of rape to a crusade to inform and empower women. In a sense she has embodied a positive side of "Wrath"

Thank you very much Joe

This series (as well as the latest bridal series) was a personal challenge to push myself more in my skill, and I am glad that you appreciate it
