One Woman, Reinvented Hundreds of Different Ways


If there’s one thing Flickr has done, it’s opened up a world where we can see the amazing creativity and imagination people possess. One of those people is Lela (aka SmallRaffaela). Her self-portraits move from surreal and scary to romantic and beautiful. Each photo reads like its only story, which is ultimately left up to the viewer to interpret.

Here are a few things people have said about her work.

“Her images, her words, seem to radiate some inner power that I wish I saw in women I have known; something deep and beautiful, dark and brooding, direct and mischevious too. And, ultimately loving and hopeful.” – bossbob50

“Her work is truly original. It follows the threads of her thoughts, her memory and her experience of art in so many mediums that she holds so closely to her soul, and then it voices those threads anew and displays them in a rich tapestry that is completely her own. I can hear the songs she sings, and I can recognize them, but the flavor is fresh and new, and I have shared her experience.” – ed.barham
