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.
