Art makes me happy. Money also makes me happy. If I can't have one, then I'll take the other. If I can have both, then I suppose I'd call that heavenly.
You'll see two different women in my portfolio.
One is a younger, skinnier, bendier me from when modeling was all I did.
The other woman is a glamorous, curvaceous me that doesn't have to try so hard to be impressive. I'd like to revisit some of the surreal themes of my earlier work, but haven't found the right project.
I am a contortionist, but there's much more to me than flexibility. Flexibility can be ironic, it can be humorous. It can be expressive and dynamic. It can transform the body into sculptural elements. It can be surreal. I do love it. But I tend away from contortion for contortion's sake. Perhaps by looking at my work, you'll understand what I mean.
I've enjoyed highly produced shoots and minimally produced shoots equally. What I haven't enjoyed are poorly produced shoots. I prefer to shoot in studios. I prefer tight cropping. As for wardrobe and make-up, I prefer experimental, avant-garde artists.
As my work has been developing, I've found more and more that gallery worthy images have peaked my interest. I want to produce my own gallery show soon, and am looking for projects that work towards that. I'm not working on a portfolio so to speak. In my head, there's a difference.

"Fantastic shoot that was most unusual-- an up-close and personal collaboration. Lydia has an extraordinary ability to improvise while the photographer is buzzing around her. I'm looking forward to more shoots of this kind."
