“Dizzying” would be an understatement, one would agree, after full acceptance of Cassandra Smith’s almost careless, yet engaging presence in these shots. Photographer Tyrone Lavigne captures her easy vacillation from one emotion to the next in an absolute wash of delicious flavors; leaving the viewer curious and crazed, exhausted in the most vivacious of ways, much like a muscle beaten to strength after a gratifying day of hard work. Drawn to devour, when we catch the glinting spark in her eyes (in such precious few of these fleeting moments), the viewer is at once confronted with the craving to understand the muse, and the realistic futility of that desire…creating a deliciously fervent frustration! There’s a subtle restlessness in our model, as she bares the beauty of her energy… giving it up to us to toil with. The stunning series solicits a compulsion to know her fully, and the hope that one could stand in the flame, unburned, by succeeding. I love the flirtatious elegance of this excellent collaboration. Enjoy!
