The Wire | Modeling & Mortality
A quote from Harriet Alida Lye's article on Vice, 'What Posing Nude Taught Me About Mortality':
"Though it's a matter of fact that having your portrait painted captures you, the subject, at a particular and transient moment, I never thought of it that way. I didn't think about it being a past record in a distant future because modeling, for me, is a way of spending time in the present. Like being on a train, modeling is a way for me to stay still and yet be doing something. Going somewhere. Thinking about things. Getting transformed into art."
