she's so beautiful.


Anonymous Lucia said ... (3:55 AM) : 

Wau, she is beautiful, I just love her complexion, so fresh with a lot of freckles. Her dress is pretty, she looks like a heroine from a film, something "old" about the picture, or not old maybe, but Moviesque, if you get what I mean.

Btw, I bought your book a couple of days a go, and I totally LOVE it!!!
The only picture that I miss in it, is the one from Paris last spring, a very amazing lady with jeans, a grey fur, and huge sun glasses, an the most amazing shoes.
The book really opened my mind, and I started to like the way Garance dresses ( first I thought she was an ordinary girl ) but now I see her colors in totally different way. So i am gonna get a new color chart in my wardrobe, a lot of grey, beige and dark blue, instead of my black and bright color.

Thanks, great job Scott!

Was wondering when a Dubliner would show up. Beautiful beautiful image. Was so great to meet you and hear you speak so eloquently about your process and journey. Thanks for coming to investigate this fair land. Helen

the freckles make an otherwise dull picture quite nice.


Anonymous ada said ... (4:12 AM) : 

there's a certain candid poise in her posture, and yet a bit of mystery to her as well. maybe it is the elegance of the pose (something in her left hand is a bit pose-y, though) jux'd with the fun of the dress.

I want to be friends with this girl =)

You're Finally coming to SF! Looking forward, indeed! Great work, my dear. Sincerely inspirational.

Thank you for your work.

This is so perfect and feels so personal, like I'm sitting down to a glass of wine with her. I'm always amazed at how the colors in your images seem to complement each other perfectly. The green wall, her red hair, and the yellow of the wine. That rainbow leaf print is also great. :)

Though some may see this as a tad stereotypical, for me it's the perfect selection for your first published Irish portrait. She embodies everything I love about Irish women--the fair skin, the gentle countenance, the quiet confidence--and brings to mind every generation of Irish women I've had the pleasure to know.

Stunning picture that shows how freckles can be as flattering as the multicoloured pattern on her dress.

Was this taken at the bar in Harvey Nicks I wonder?

Your talk at the Gallery of Photography was really inspiring, thanks for coming to Dublin and hope we'll get to see some on-the-street shots as well :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:19 AM) : 

This is easily the most breathtaking shot you have ever taken. The print, pops of red, freckles... those are eyes that say something. Lovely.



Blogger Anna said ... (10:20 AM) : 

This is such a lovely portrait. The graphic print and primary colors play nicely against the softness of the light and her complexion. And the glints of light on the glass make it all perfect.

One of the best pictures ever. So lively, so mysterious, colorful and quiet at the same time.

My God. Ireland = freckles, pale skin, red hair and booze in the hand.

Nothing wrong with this woman. She's grand but this was just so predictable.

Interesting that after your heavily advertised rendez vous that there is only one photograph. I'm not sure whether the oh-so-predictable Maureen O' Hara hunt is a reflection on slim pickings or a total lack of imagination on your part?

Anonymous Julia McEvoy said ... (1:23 PM) : 

Looks almost like a silk Kimono, the way the material flows. An ageless pose and almost Mona Lisa like expression. And the long, pale fingers on the bar, with the crooked pinky--the translucent quality of her skin hints at vulnerability that belies the mature woman pose, to my eye anyway.

Nice shot. Makes me want to buy the book.


Anonymous Alessandro said ... (1:23 PM) : 

What a beautiful girl. She has natural grace and elegance to spare. She actually reminds me of princess Beth Ruspoli, an irish descent American who married Italian royalty.

I've been back to look at this picture about five times today. Definitely something special about it. Beautiful portrait - the eyes! And boo to whoever said the pale hands weren't 'aesthetically pleasing'. People come in lots of different colours you know - we're not all a WASP-y American beige.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:22 PM) : 

"She is not beautiful"?! Are you insane, Anonymous?

I think some people are prejudiced against redheads. I've always admired how Irish redheads dress -- there's no sense of apology or embarrassment (as there is in the UK or the US) associated with being pale and having red hair, and they know how to bring out the best in their inevitably beautiful complexions and gorgeous hair. There's more than one kind of beauty, and it's lovely to see it amplified and appreciated in this way.

"Scott, how do you do it? She is not beautiful but yet you have managed to make her look good! This is prob someone you would pass on the street and not be impressed with." --

Sorry anonymous but I disagree. Scott did not "make her look good", she looks great. She might not be what you think or have been conditioned to think is beautiful, but there is strength in her beauty. And I don't believe that Scott helped her to get dressed nor did he put that exact belt around her waist nor the make-up on her face nor did he ask her to wear her hair up in a style reminiscent of La Bardot.

She enabled Scott's camera to capture her personality and her FANTASTIC STYLE.


Blogger shark mombassa said ... (3:45 PM) : 

I cannot resist letting you all know her dress is Jean Muir. She looks stunning, but thats because of the quality of this human being. She is kind, sensitive, intelligent and creative, something we can all aspire to don't you think? And Scott how smart of you to recognize her qualities out of all the people you could have and did meet in Dublin. More of this please and less of the obvious that we can see in any fashion shoot or magazine.u

This is classy if I do say so myself. She even matches the table. Red lips, red belt, red hair, red in the shirt and a slight rosyness in her skin. Everything is slight enough to not overpower. This works.

a stunning photo - she's really beautiful. She's so lucky her freckles didn't fade as she grew up! Even better that she hasn't covered them with tons of foundation.
I thought only aussie redheads of irish and scottish descent got that freckley.

how can you pull it off to almost making everyday such a special, carasteristic photo?

it's a great portrait, for all the reasons that had been expressed above.
funny thing is unlike a few posters, i did not find her to be the stereotypical irish lady, but just a great looking woman in a great photograph, who happened to have pale & freckled complexion and reddish hair, and was in dublin

One of the most beautiful women I've seen on your site.

Everything about her is perfection, right down to the way it looks like she chews her nails.

I wouldn't wear that print in a hundred years, but on her it's divine.

"- the perfect portrait need not contain all perfection - imperfections retain interest and leave scope for imagination...! "

I love your site, not just for your amazing pictures, but for the sheer POETRY of some of your commentors. :o)

I am reading some of the comments and had to laugh. Who cares if someone thinks she is not a raving beauty. It is a great shot end of story. Personally I do not like her dress at all. So what, I am only giving my opinion. Sart, gives 100% to all his work and honest he cant please everyone.

Love her freckles


Anonymous Saoirse said ... (10:41 AM) : 

Yes, it would be her name.

Blath means "flower, blossom."in Irish. In legend, Bláthnaid, the reluctant wife of Curai Mac Daire, loved Cúchulainn, her husband's rival. She revealed the secret entrance to her husband's fortress to him by milking her cow and letting the milk run down the hill into a stream. Cúchulainn followed the stream, raided the fortress and rescued Bláthnaid.

She's amazingly beautiful.
The photo's perfect for her!

Her freckles are so intoxicating. Lovely shot.


Anonymous Alyxmyself said ... (6:42 PM) : 

She looks like my mother. It's uncanny. I have never seen another woman who resembles her more closely.

I now know what my skin would look like if I hadn't been born a native floridian, but in a climate such as Ireland's.

Thanks for a pleasant reminder of my Mom.


Blogger elm479 said ... (7:30 PM) : 

Phenomenal. Something about the way the play of color on her dress reflects the play of colorful freckles and red hair that makes this shot so perfect.


Blogger AnastasiaC said ... (8:16 PM) : 

its so cool everyone is embracing her freckles!
pale is the new tan....fake bake faces look so haggered!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:53 PM) : 

This is absolutely my favourite photo of yours ever (and I have been reading every day for a long time). It's so harmonious and graceful...I do hope that you'll be doing another book soon. I've come back to see this photo over and over again in the last couple of days and would love to have a print copy. Congratulations!
