* * *

trudge through a place where shadows cling
barefoot but completely unfeeling
exiled but seared, memories relentless
vicariously longing to regress
deep within the cracks are spaces ever so hollow
with beauty only equally matched by her sorrow
now comes dusk, the moon and its ascent
the seemingly unending murmurs of lament

About the Model: Samantha believes that the simple, organic, and sometimes experimental nature of analogue-style photography still has a place in today’s world. As a freelance photographer, she is equally adept with shooting digitally, and especially loves intimate portraits and wedding photography. She believes each tiny moment is a story in the making; a glance, a touch, a smile.
