An Unsafe Journey Leads to the Road of Success

Unsafe Journey by  Amy Helene Johansson

Haunting isn't it?  It makes the viewer uncomfortable, uneasy, and yet very curious about the story that surrounds the young woman, and the person who so elegantly and imaginatively captured this moment.  The risk to both participants is great, and from the comfort of the couch, or chair, wherever you might be viewing this, that risk is just captivating.

I was late to discovering this picture which was featured in the December issue UK edition of Elle magazine.   She was one of the Elle commission price nominee.  She also won a Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize.

I would love to have a print of this.  I'm just... so drawn to it.
