These photos are a selection from an editorial titled “Pieces of Me.” The editorial shows a model posing in different scenes with a puzzle that has portraits of herself on it.

In the portraits she has clean hair and makeup and when standing near the puzzle she is wearing extravagant makeup and couture, illustrating the different sides and ‘pieces’ of herself. For each scene the puzzle gets disassembled in various ways and the model interacts with the different puzzle arrangements.

Each individual puzzle piece was hand crafted and together they form an approximately 9 ft x 61/2 ft puzzle.
