I want to create a series of portraits to celebrate the human mortality, and through that, the strength of life she possesses. Man and woman are both vulnerable and strong. The bruises and marks we get through life are trofées of a life fully lived. UV photography makes some of those marks visible to the human eye, so if you have a bruise, scar or sun burnt spot, I would like you to pose with that life trofé of yours. Welcome to the Chicago Bruise Festival!
