I woke up this morning to the news that British fashion designer Alexander McQueen had committed suicide. The world has lost another great artist. He came so far, survived many struggles, and yet, was masterfully able to find beauty and inspiration in some of the most obscure places. We can only hope that he has finally found peace.
"I shot the images using a thermal imaging camera, similar to the one used for underground detection of bodies at ground zero. The images represent the relationship between a dead fiber - the fabric - with a live fiber - the girls skin. It's all about life." - Alexander McQueen
