I stumbled across Kandy K a while ago now, and had a picture of her as my desktop for months; this one here -I must be Dead. I adore the lighting (don't know how to describe it) and the way they are so intimate but yet ignoring each other.
Kandy is originally from the UK, but moved to the States after meeting her American husband on Myspace (lucky her!). She is a make-up artist and model, and I find her photos so refreshing and inspiring. They remind me that beauty can extend further than what mainstream media wants us to believe.
I also love the fact that she also struggles with constantly staining her bathroom with hairdye (I thought it was just me!).
