My portraits of @deola_by_deolasagoe are on the cover of today's @thisdaystyle . You should go out and get this one . Her interview is amazing. I remember telling her over the phone the images I had of her in my head . I described the movements and fringe details . This amazing woman just went ahead, sketched her interpretation of what I had described and produced some pieces for the shoot.
More importantly she brought way more than the freedom and the spirit I had described. I can shout it from the mountain top... Deola Sagoe is the most amazing subject a photographer can ask for . She connects so uniquely. Her beauty runs deep and she's understand what it means to be truly free.
