Sad models

In this model-obsessed culture we're pretty used to perfection. Beautifully sculpted faces (and bodies), just the right expression or pose. Of course, those are professional models. Amateur models (kind of an oxymoron) are a whole different ballgame. Instead of heroin chic, they look more like stomach flu chic, or why-did-I-agree-to-do-this chic. Maybe it's just me, but sometimes the wrong expression can overwhelm a whole photograph and upstage a perfectly nice handicraft (to say nothing of a somewhat questionable one).
