model-dancer-contortionist Maya Dessa @ Maya Devlin [1]: ‘Explosion’ by Elisabeth O’Rourke for NAKID Mag (April) 2016

Los Angeles based photographer, Elisabeth O’Rourke, specializes in fashion photography. She works hard at ensuring that the clothing tells a story in her photographs. Wanting to challenge herself more, she began working with the beings inside the clothing; wanting to see if she could make the body tell the story of the person instead of the clothing. She took Maya Dessa up into the mountains to explore and crawl around together and she feels that she was able to tell her story, one that she expresses with her body.
