St Merrique works so much with so many great photographers that I was unable to choose the most beautiful photographs, they all are, in her blog that she often feeds with grace and simplicity.
So, after 4 hours of pure admiration, I decided to show you her infinite talent with Adrian Holmes, an Art Photographer I recently met on Facebook. As you will see, the result of their work is simply splendid. So much beauty still gives me hope in humanity.
Do I still need to present St Merrique ? She is my close friend, she is splendid, she has a beautiful soul :
" I'm a nature girl and am passionate about anything that represents growth, change, and enlightenment to the higher self. Being at one with Earth and giving back the love she has given us, going back to our roots, self-realization, birth, reincarnation, death and rebirth, the thinner lines between surrealism and the coffee we stir every morning. Don't forget yourself."
I love her from the bottom of my heart. Since 8 years, all our messages are full of tenderness and joy. She is on my wall with the song she wrote for me... Look at up right above my books. She wanted to visit me this summer in Marseille, France, but she is so busy. One day perhaps, but soon my Muse because I'm beginning to open my wings, il est venu le temps des mots de lumière, des mots aux ailes déployées.
If you discover St Merrique, what is impossible, you will find all of her in the 10 articles I wrote with her.

But who is Adrian Holmes ?
A kind man I am very honored to introduce. Thank you Adrian for your ok! which touched me.
"Photography is my passion. It is my medium for expression and my method of sharing my view of the world around me.
My specialities include: portraits, fine art, architectural (interiors and exteriors).
I have been influenced by many of the well known photographers and artists from the past and present. Annie Leibovitz, Andreas Gursky, Helmut Newton and Richard Avedon are amongst my favourites. My greatest inspiration however, comes from simply observing the world around me, the natural world in particular.
I currently provide professional services to a wide range of clientèle, from private/commercial portrait bookings to architects and interior designers. I work with a fantastic team of assistants and digital artists, which allows me to expertly complete commissions both large and small."
"Depicting the nude human form in art is not new, it is as old as art itself. One of my favorite lines regarding nudity comes from an episode of Seinfeld . When the subject of female vs. male nudity comes up, Elaine (I’m paraphrasing) compares the female form to “a work of art” while comparing the male form to “an SUV”. I found that not only funny, but quite poignant.
My photographs are stories of an appreciation for women, as well as a study of the beauty of form and light.
