Stephanie Joy Field in ‘The Words In Her Eyes’ by Thomas Babeau for Revs Digital
Posted Jun 02, 2015
Stephanie Joy Field speaks without saying in ‘The Words In Her Eyes’ shot by Thomas Babeau for Revs #9. I can choose to be who I am – to see or to not see – I am not my skin. Worth and wisdom merge in this silent interpretation of a woman’s world. Marking our own coming out party. Symbolic figures rise up against the beliefs that have held us down for centuries. Pictures more powerful than any words can attach. From behind the veil of sorrow comes a willingness to fight for our rights. The ferocity of fire moves through the soul as prose ache for independence. Stylist, Tatiana Dumabin, provides a pathway to hope with materials that mark a moment of truth. United as one, female spirit stands together, artfully devoted to the essence of communal courage. Skin reflects strength as black nylon disintegrates in righteous indignation. Wearing pieces of long cloth can be seen strong as iron or soft as silk, which is a sartorial question that speaks to the power of choice. The birth of beauty comes to be as (Makeup Artist) Meyloo celebrates the art of the face. Thoughts propelled by the hurt in the eyes, touch lured by the pout of the lips. Veils inspire the idea of independence while Burkas bond us to individual faith. Dare to Uncover the Depth of Your Dreams… to look at your reflection and ponder the direction of your destiny…. to accept the past but be willing to change, that is the mark of growth. The savage fact of our pilgrimage will have us seeing much pain. But, in the end, the battle that is brewing is the battle you must have within yourself. To bury the burden of blame and open the door of acceptance – that is your truth.
