This picture tells the story. Perhaps not the full story, but a good part of it. It tells a story of natural power, beauty and grace. Somehow this image also tells the story of a serene, unassuming and unpretentious woman.
I have to admit that I struggled with this image. After taking hundreds of pictures of Sam, both Runway and Editorial, this image is the one that captures my attention and forces me to wonder. Who is Samantha? Is she the Samantha Drew who takes over a set and stuns the viewers with confidence and rhythm. Or is she the soft-spoken, natural young girl that makes everyone feel welcome and accepted?
