I Love her selfies!! Very creative works! It's gorgeous to see smth new from her every Day!!! Hi sweet!! @miraleo 😘😘
I think it's pretty cool, not ugly...reminds me of the band KISS ...although most of my pics are "pretty" I like to also take pics of what's real, like dead birds, sadness etc... I think it's exciting to confront what scares and challenges you...
I feel release
kick ass!! @miraleo
I Like that
It says 'Rock n Roll' to me!! Love it ! @miraleo
Well I would have to disagree that this image is in any way ugly. I think it's fantastic! Not so much scary either. I look at this and wonder what would cause one to make this face, a curiosity that forces the imagination to wander. Great image! And to your discussion of ugly, that is nothing more than a perception. It is said beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the same could be said for ugly. It's all in how you perceive any given thing.
Wow. So raw. And brilliant. Congrats @miraleo - amazing work.
It takes guts to do a shot like this, @miraleo—I love the vulnerability and transparency.
LOVE!!! She is brilliant. ❤ I think we should embrace it all. It's just easier to show the "pretty" stuff. Congrats @miraleo 😘😘😘
I don't find it ugly, pretty cool actually. It pulls me in & makes me wonder what the story is...puts ideas in my head. Reminds me of a teacher I had once that would show us a picture & have us write what we thought was happening.
@megss___ the caption
There's a difference between ugly and ugly-pretty. Ugly is something grotesque and mean and filled with bad emotions. Ugly-pretty is capturing something real and naked under florescent lights. But go for it! I'm exited to see what you come up with.
wow!! @joshjohnson thanks for introducing @miraleo ! @miraleo you have got some awesome self portraits including this one !! ppl do check out her feed.
I think this is hardcore and wonderful. I love to capture old decaying things, there is beauty within everything.
Congrats @miraleo!! Very emotional and artistic. Love it!
I love it!!!
Art is about feelings and emotion. It should encompass all of them-and we should be able to show all of them.
@miraleo I'm not troubled by this selfie at all. In it, I see a woman with the capacity to express herself in an uncompromising, non-submissive way. It makes this image all the more powerful and captivating as a result! Bravo!
So dramatic - great light @miraleo
Another great pick !! So fun to look at all these !!👍😜
Thank you for posting this one because while the groupings are pretty - they are pretty. It's why we hide behind the lens
I admire the person that took it. It shows that she can let all walls tumble and express herself. How many of us don't envy her courage. Amazing
I feel this way sometimes
LOVE the idea :)
The ugly and the gross things is something I've always found interesting. That's probably why I chose to be a mortician instead of a clerk or something. I am an artist, my medium is sacred and my work is greatly appreciated.
This is superb!!!!!!
@5toria Okay, you had me at mortician. A photographer/mortician--there has to be a story there! ;)
Wild and wonderful !! @miraleo
That photo nice..!
Very strong amazing @miraleo
@miraleo כל הכבוד אולי זאת הדרך להשיג 14 אלף ? עוקבים
I love it! It's fantastic!!! @miraleo
I'll give it a whirl!
Creepy that there are 666 likes right now!
Alarming, but excellent
I love this! But its kinda creepy
I'm happy to see this! I feel like this forum often promotes things that fit into stock photograph more than artistic expression - beautiful, but boring. That seems to be particularly true of color themed days. This is much more interesting!
I love the concept! Who gets to say what is ugly and what is beautiful. I think its beautiful that the artist is being honest in thief work and shared something that isn't "pleasing" to most people. Awesome work!!!
Sorry, many of us don't run from the ugly, just chose art that engages us. It might not be pretty, but has content over shock value. There is a genre that embraces dilapidated cars, buildings etc. but unless there is a message, it's just old and broken and no better than all the "pretty" stuff ... (my 2 cents)
I like it! I feel like screaming to right now!!
I don't feel like its at all ugly, scary, disturbing, etc. I see tension being released. I see a person who has held something in for far too long and is beautifully screaming out and letting it go! This photo is not at all scary and is, in fact, extraordinarily beautiful.
Not so ugly, I get to initial interpretations... One that its almost zombie-esc, almost looks like the zombie/vampires from will smiths movie? And the second one is more sexual, forgive me if I'm speaking of a taboo subject but it looks like a pretty orgasmic release to me:) #beautiful
@karibaskets Well said...I agree
@miraleo you have a lovely style and i admire your authenticity .. your gallery is gorgeous. @joshjohnson for me, this type of image by itself DOES bother me though. i don't run away from ugly .. but if my reality is already filled with harshness and ugliness of pain .. i don't need any reminders. seeing the pretty balances out the negative i face in my reality .. it's not me denying the real at all. i like that there is freedom of expression though .. but i agree with Osho who said art has 2 branches - just catharsis that dumps the negative energy out and then there is hurt already processed into meaningful life lessons/moments being put out for all to share the transformed hurt. It's important that the ugly dumping not be made public .. the negativity can spread like a virus. But the processed pain is what inspires us .. what touches our soul, moves the human story. I think this is a good guide to what 'ugly' really means .. processed pain is always, beautiful in its own right and will resonate beauty with someone out there. Peace ✌
Very out there but cool
Wrath and solitude
I knew Right now that you are coming to brazil!!! You are welcome !
