Girl sitting alone and melancholic on a couch as a party ensues behind her.

Party Girl

'Love knows not its depth till the hour of separation' - Kahlil Gibran. This was a 'still' taken on the set of an independent short film in Los Angeles directed by Hal Haberman. It was between takes, and the actress was staying in character as they lit her. I love the melancholic mood. I think it's easy to relate to this moment - that particular loneliness exacerbated by a crowded room you just don't feel a part of.
