    No, not at all - I am saying she did know what she was doing in asking you for the shoot - I'm not saying you did know or that you knew what you were going to do with them after the shoot.

    The last 4 in the series are superb, I think the say exactly what was meant to be said, even down to the models expression. Can't fault them.

    Powerful stuff.

    She was probably shocked, but unfortunately not in the way you think she was. To her, she probably thinks she still needs to loose a little extra weight here and there.

    It's a mental disorder she's struggling with...

    I don't believe any ethical line was crossed and I think your post was quite tasteful. You have every right to share these images as you've been given permission by the model to share them. You didn't say anything defaming or derogatory in your original post or elsewhere in this thread.

    People have their hot button issues and tend to be critical of others at times when it doesn't seem appropriate. I wouldn't take it to heart, this is after all, the internet. :)

    Probably, and I agree with the first sentence of your second post.. I think the thread title is brilliant.

    There is a documentary film with the same name - profiling a dancer.

    those are some powerful images. i especially like the one with the girl turned around and her hands above her head, and how in the other photo with her arm around her face, you can see goosebumbs. i like this collection very much.

    And yet you title the thread "Dying to be Thin".

    I'm not trying to be argumentative, just pointing out what, to me, is an obvious contradiction.

    To correct you, they were titled this AFTER the fact, AND like i already said, they were titled that ONLY for this forum.

    Please...

    I feel sorryfor this woman, and I hope she can recover at some point before it is too late.

    As for the photographs, the focus, lighting, exposure, and emotion captured.... spot on. Good job Maya.....loving woman who's name isn't neccessarily MAya according to her sig.
