I set up this shot on a whim. My model, Tim is an artist himself, and when he came to visit me during my residency, I said I wanted to do a "pieta" but with the roles reversed and him looking like his usual bad ass self. Interestingly, he didn't come across as one in any of the frames but looked so gentle. What's more interesting is that in reality, although he comes across as rough, he is a husband and father of almost 3 kids - his wife is pregnant with their 3rd. The dichotomy of him is wonderful and I think I captured his nurturing side. I love this one.
