Wow. I had a very strong reaction to the first shot that actually took me a few minutes to get my head around. My very respectful personal conclusions:
1. Kudos for pushing things. It is a powerful image.
2. As is, I find it unsettling.
3. I think I would love it without the hands. They feel dismembered to me, as if they're not hers (or attached) and while it took me a bit to realize it, I think that's what feels traumatic to me about the portrait. For the sake of mentioning it, I don't obsess over cropped limbs like many do.
Just my personal take. Thanks for posting it, Ian.
