I was adored by many for promises of pleasure.
But He judged me not.
He laid shame upon those who have had me shamed.
And He bade me go my way.
After that all the tasteless fruit of life turned sweet to my mouth,
and the scentless blossoms breathed fragrance into my nostrils.
I became a woman without a tainted memory
and I was free.
The words of this poem and the photo were inspired by a piece written by Kahlil Gibran called ‘Joanna the wife of Herod’s Steward’. She was considered a prostitute and was publicly humiliated by the Sadducees.
I wanted to create an image that illustrated the essence of this woman world. The words in the image portrays the many places men came from to enjoy the pleasures she offered. But somehow there is a subtle shyness in her posture with a light enveloping to illustrate the freedom in the forgiveness she received.
