I have seen many kinds of bravery in my line of work; silent, outspoken, forbidden, hushed and a couple more. The model in this photograph struck me as the kind of person with the best kind of bravery, in my opinion, confidence, self-confidence. You can see it in her expression, you can sense it in the action she's taking right in the moment of the shot.
It's very interesting that you chose black and white for this photograph, the emotion just emanates without the need of color whatsoever. The bit of light that hits directly on her is necessary to show what needs to be shown.
She's taking off the hair that's not hers', so to speak. She's showing us another side of beauty, she's definitely gorgeous and uniquely portrays the fact that every person makes and has their own beauty traits.
Perhaps, I personally can't really critique this piece the way you want to, not having the condition this person has but I do recognize bravery, confidence and beauty when I see it. Even with her eyes closed, we can take a peep at her true, clear and beautiful intentions.
Great Job.

first of all; i dont text this because ur on of my best friends but i really gotta say something to this image;
this one really took my breath away, it is so deep and u really can feel her "pain" in here and how she deal with her destiny. I opened this picture on my computer and i really needed to stare at this one about 5 minutes because it really took my breathe away. the make up is also a good choice and well done (dont forget to name the awesome bracelets) at this point haha. This image just shows how talented you are. anna is amazing.

My mother had Alopecia Areata while I was growing up. She wore wigs for several years. Fortunately it eventually grew back and I believe she told me most cases it's not permanent. I'm glad your friend is confident enough for this. I admire her truly but I still hope someday you will be able to photograph her with a full head of hair and a smile. My heart and my deep respect goes out to her. ^.^

I lost all of my hair due to early onset female pattern baldness. I was 23 when I finally gave in and shaved my head. This photo is beautiful and speaks straight to the heart of me. Nice Work <3 Anna you are beautiful! Rock that amazing bald head!!!! :))))))))))

You truly captured her beauty in this photo. I read a book about this disease in a book called because of Anya. people like this truly are strong and brave. I believe people this strong shoud be rewarded. She really is beautiful inside and out. (or at least it seems like that to me) i really wish i could meet her in person. I really wish i was as brave as her. I know I can never be. If i had lost all my hair i would have made my self sick with embarrassment. I admire you with all my heart.

Hi there,

First I would like to say, that this is absolutely my favorite photo in whole deviantArt jungle:#1:
And just wanted to ask you if you don't mind me to use it for my Photography history project where we have to choose one photo and analyze it? If you don't then I will ask you to answer few questions about it:) So what do you think?

you should tell your friend that i haven't looked at the other photos that you took of her yet, but that i think she looks beautiful right here with out the hair. a lot of people dont look good bald but she looks beautiful.

you also did a really good job on this photo. its a great angle and shot.

Alright! Props to your friend for doing this! I have aa too and within the past year, I've lost all my head hair. I would really appreciate it if everyone would not assume that hair loss is cancer! I'm 22 years old an I have older women coming up to me, explaining how hard it was for them and that I will "make it". I then have to tell these amazing women, that alopecia areata affects my body hair and my psyche. That's it!

Now don't get me wrong, I could never be as brave as to be a "proud baldie", at least not yet - so please! Please everyone don't judge by appearances alone!!!! Alopecia looks like side-effects of radiation and chemo, but its not!

Alopecia ia an auto immune disease. Where the body attacks its own hair follicles. Essentaly meaning our hair is an "enemy". The fall out is individual and unique to each person as is the age of development. I've had it since I was 3 - and only recently became completely bald.

Sorry I'm ranting. Just please remember that going bald is an amazing thing for a woman to do because hair is so sensitive to us, but please don't compare to the troubles of someone suffering from cancer.

But I completely agree with the daily deviation award! " a photo of strength through the purposeful sharing of vulnerability!" Couldn't be anymore right!

Thank your friend, anna, for me - she's amazing and I hope one day I could have the courage to go out without a scarf or wig!

Sorry I ranted.... ^^;

It gets easier. And it is a bit nerve racking to go out bald for the first time. I completely understand the cancer bit though. It's such a sad state and I feel horrible for anyone with it. I barely have the strength to go out with aa, let alone cancer.

Wow... das ist einfach mega..... man kann gar nicht das richtige Wort finden, um es zu beschreiben.
Im ersten Augenblick dachte ich an Krebs (weil meine Mutter auch die Haare verloren hat in der Zeit), aber dann hab ich ja gelesen, was genau es ist.
Ich möchte dir danken für dieses tolle Bild. Es zeigt Stärke, die man einfach nicht vermutet, wenn man an so eine Krankheit denkt. Außerdem zeigt es, wie schön diese Person ist, auch wenn sie mit so einer Situation leben muss.

Einfach spitzen klasse!
