Fragility - Self Portrait by Jaeda DeWalt


Available to buy on…


I am open and receptive, despite my reclusive and private nature… this makes me easy to wound, as my vulnerability and fragility are out there for all to see. In a weird way, my wounds become lessons waiting to be learned.

    beautiful and haunting— it’s almost like you are formed of negative space, tears in the wallpaper, when i look at it from a distance. just beautiful

  • Thank you, Margaret :).

    This is beautiful Jaeda…love the low light you’ve chosen – adds to the vulnerability!

  • Thank you, Wendi :). It is definitely a departure from my usual style and i am glad the low light adds to the vulnerability i was trying to convey in this image.

    This is a very emotional image, mind you I think I would be if I had wallpaper like that. LOL

    Love it.

    Low key and almost Victorian although the models then never seemed to be as beautiful. The toning is beyond the expected sepia and for me puts it on a higher plane.

  • Victorian, i hadn’t thought of that, i like it :). I shot this lo-fi with blue party bulbs and used a lace table cloth for the background. Got lucky with the results :). Thank you Roger. Your comments are always so thoughtful.
