This photo was made the same day of "Adios" [link] and, however, is exactly the other face of a same coin.

"Halo" could be suggest a lot of things, beginning for the technical details of the photo: The model looks like she just left a dark place and walking towards the light which, in turn, seems to emanate from her. This effect is simply amazing, and surrounds the portrait of an atmosphere almost metaphysical... effectively: an halo.

But, in adittion of this visual details, the best of the portrait is the almost defiant gaze of the model, concentrated in only one of her eyes, while her hair covered with a certain roguery the rest of her face. All in this portrait is motion: lights, hair, necklaces, body...but, to difference of the side A of it ("Adios") the movement evokes a dramatic exit from suffering... a metaphorical declaration of independence ... the beginning of a new life surrounded by light.

It never ceases to amaze me Slairea expressiveness and her way of looking at herself, while looking deeply inside of us.
