Guest Photo of the Day: *naturel*

*naturel*, originally uploaded by Saskia-Photography.
Saskia Volders is an 18-year-old photographer in Belgium whose photographs have a raw intensity that, I've found, is often associated with young portraitists. She uses that intensity to great effect in her photography, even something as simple and understated as this self-portrait: the colors are soft, the lips slightly parted, the tiny heart pendant perfectly placed, and yet the direct gaze from her slightly turned head, and the heavy shadow on the side of her face, make it look as though she's looking right out of the screen at you.
