Andrea, your landscapes certainly have a "look" to them that is unique and wonderful!  The first image you posted is the most powerful to me, but all of them are excellent.  Keep up the great work!

And here's another one, Russ: dig the dark-haired dancer in the middle of the background group of three.

Big mistake for Dee Dee: never share the stage with dogs, kids or better dancers!

Another stunning image (this last one).

I think this one would also look good in black and white.

my photograph on violence is part of a work entitled the truth behind the door, taken from a real story that he told me a friend who has been raped. After the story I imagined the story in my own way trying to highlight a problem throughout the world (one in three women has been raped), it is not a nice story, but a complaint against this crime
I have, I'm happy to say, no first-hand experience. However, I suspect that few women about to be raped, or who have just ben raped, are naked except for stiletto heeled shoes. That kind of dress is commoner in pornography (I'm told).

I take it you don't dig Helmut Newton, then? He has publicly admitted to a box of the less pleasant sort of image, but I don't think that should imply that the lady's dress, of itself, indicates porn; I can easily imagine many times when such dress would be highly stimulating in the very finest traditions of consensual marital love... However, the Fatty Arbuckle equipment adds a sinister note, even if the model's using the wrong brand.

The heels in this case, are the emblem of the "trade".
The walls are crumbling physical setting but also a symbol of moral degradation.
I would keep in mind that there are no "coded events. " The reality is sometimes the most amazing and original imagination.
It expresses unequivocally what I intend to convey to the observer and I find it a strong emotional impact.
The very antithesis of these two elements heels and the squalor of the environment is the sublimation of the contrast between the squalor of the criminal act, in which the woman is considered only a must-have, and the hypocrisy of our society in which 'appear, looking at all costs, to be "trendy" annihilates any human relationship and interpersonal.
Finally, the fact that the victim does not escape, it seems that in almost all cases where this situation exists, the ending is exactly what transpires image. Still, the picture leaves a moment of suspense ... even if everything seems to have written, what happened next? The victim will be able to escape his tormentor in a last, desperate burst of self-defense?
It seems important to emphasize that the real power of that image lies in the fact at have caught the attention of everyone, and have struck the imagination, have created a relationship "empathy" with the observer. Each has then filtered and found the image on the basis of their emotions, their own experience, their moral and cultural beliefs.
Thanks to all for discussion and to this sincere and exchange of ideas.

I'm afraid I don't, no. My brother gave me a book of his work for my 21st birthday, a good many moons ago. I didn't like it then and I don't like it now, much. I can see the artistry but I can't see the point. My failing, I'm almost prepared to accept.

On the other hand, I'm as susceptible as the next man to emotions evoked by a shapely leg above a high-heeled shoe.

What "trade"? Your earlier answer gave the impression that the shot was some kind of contribution to an anti-rape campaign, and that's what I didn't see.
