Beautiful people do not just happen

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”   Elizabeth Kubler Ross

Meeting and photographing French born Australian artist Mirka Mora was a huge honour. The first thing that struck me was the sense of child-like wonder in her eyes. She is one of the most beautiful and intriguing women I’ve ever photographed. This portrait was taken in her studio in Melbourne, Australia using a 70-200mm lens 2f2.8 and edited using Roma preset.
