This is something like what my Halloween costume is going to be. Minus the half-nakedness. And speaking of half-nakedness, much of Kristi Ropeleski’s work features models in various states of undress.

Her Blood Harmony series  is actually a large collection of portraits of topless people. But when I say topless, I don’t mean Playboy topless. No, the toplessness in Ropeleski’s work is simply there and very real. There’s nothing polished or airbrushed about this work as it seemd that Ropeleski strives to depict her models as exactly what they are: people. They’re not glamorous. In fact, most of them don’t even look happy. Just very serious.

The portraits in the Your Face Here series are much more candid, the settings normal background scenes instead of the austere white backdrop of Blood Harmony. Admittedly, I enjoy these a little bit more. Call me lazy for not being able to appreciate Blood Harmony, but it just seems to me that pictures like those of our friend here are just easier to see, accept, and analyze.

If you’re interested in learning more about Kristi Ropeleski, you should check out some of the blogs that have featured her work. There’s also an interview here. Happy reading, and get those Halloween costumes ready!

    This is an excellent article and I completely consider what you said. We are trying to setup the Feed but I am not really very computer literate. Could someone tell me how I could setup the RSS feed so I get notified of any new blog post? Remember to explain it in an easy to understand way as I feel getting old.

  • spray foam insulation equipment

    You complete a great point in the final paragraph. We couldn’t agree more in your points. Around today’s modern world, your look at this issue is lacking in today’s youths. We have to make sure that our kids read more about this topic so we don’t lose our path.

  • Rosita Colasante

    Thanks so much for this brilliant blog;this is the kind of thing that keeps me awake through the day. I’ve been looking around for this site after I heard about them from a buddy and was thrilled when I found it after searching for awhile. Being a avid blogger, I’m dazzled to see others taking initivative and contributing to the community. Just wanted to comment to show my appreciation for your website as it is very interesting, and many bloggers do not get credit they deserve. I am sure I’ll drop by again and will send some of my friends.

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??

  • car drying towel

    Great blog you have here. So many websites like yours cover subjects that can’t be found in print. I don’t know how we got by 12 years ago with just print media.

  • Loura Kinnear

    Very well written article. It will be valuable to everyone who utilizes it, including myself. Keep up the good work – i will definitely read more posts.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • http://ÿþh buy used jets
