The Beauty Queen – Austin, Texas
hand painted black and white photograph

I shot this photo for a friend who had a book of poems published about an aging beauty queen and needed a cover shot for the book design. The book showed the straight portrait, I manipulated it later using acrylics to paint the skeleton image. The image was part of a collection of work shown at the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, Texas.
