"Maras Guy #1" (2009), by Noor+. "Mickaël has long been fascinated by Maras*; I decided to turn him into one of them ! My muse Bénédicte was my artistic director for this shooting! She chose a poem about love and death by Louise Labé and spent a few hours drawing carefully each word on his face! XVIth century poem meets Salvadorian toughest gang!". *Maras or marabuntas: gangs originating from Central American countries.

I never buy fashion or women's magazines because it promotes this kind of shackling of women. We are not what we wear or put on our faces or into our stomachs. Why do we do this to ourselves, to our self-image and confidence, and self-esteem? Rise above.
I like the fact this picture is very inventive and the pen marks are very strong which further brings outs the layers in the piece. The artist has brought together fragments of people faces effectively.
