Gotta say, it was refreshing to shoot something intentionally *simple* as a change of pace :)

I love the simplicity of this image- its simple, strong colour palette evoke classical portraits, and the models' pose of cold elegance compliments the title well. I also like how the model has been styled- the otherwise simple make-up allows the lip colour to capture the eye and ties in with the background colour, while the close-up also shows the models' incredibly blue eyes. The otherwise quite deep colour means the focus of the picture is the models' face, which works well. (Also, her hair is amazing.)

I'm sh... but ....how... hav... so so SO STUNNING!!!!
When i was young (8 years old) i visit the wax museum of Barcelona during my spanish life and that was a real shock! I have the same feeling. If i don't follow him for several month, i'll probably ask if is she real! It's as a dream and nightmare at the same time. Even if i know that Jessica breathe i'm very stressed. You really catch the perfect time of "no time". How can i say... ok ! when you was kid playing under water at the silly game "which stay under the last" and you are very closer to the right time to be drowned: yes exactly that!. The shot it's perfectly done and the close up of the face it's very hypnotic. He have some photo, i can stay during hours in front of her but with this one i can leave the pic. If i can make a "extra super fav" of a work, this one would be on the two first place!
The kind of eyes i love on a photographer, i think i need to come back to see your other work.... for sure!

Yes :) BPAL is a common abbreviation for their rather cumbersome name.
