a picture is worth a thousand words

Woman in words

This image is based on an incredible picture from Michael Ezra.  When I saw it look so pretty I couldn’t resist making a words composition.  But which words to use?

In order to choose the right words I read more than 50 online poems focused on women. Then I manually selected word by word among those who struck me as more consistent with the atmosphere of the image.

I ended up with a highly subjective list of  over 140 words.

I want to thank Michael Ezra for letting me to use his picture as seed image for my work. On his website you can find tons of incredibly beautiful photographs.

      Thanks Jorge. Everybody likes the first one… probably because it’s more similar to the super-nice original photo.

    Very nice work. I don’t know exactly how you do that (a software, some maths and a lot of time) but it is incredibly beautifull !
