Melyssa Ford is just one of many models, celebrities, athletes, etc who became a part of Derek Blanks’ “Alter Ego” series. Props also should be given to MUA/Bodypainter – Saisha Beecham. God knows, it takes a special talent to make crocodile skin look sexy. Btw, for those who never saw Alter Ego photos before – this is Melyssa Ford in both characters.
“All of us know what it feels like to have to “turn the other cheek” or “be the bigger person” or “turn a blind eye and ear to their critics and the nay-sayers”… I OVER-stand this concept, hence my visual interpretation of the reality: that we all hurt and are not immune to the pain caused by harsh judgment.” – Melyssa Ford about the idea for “Alter Ego” photo shoot.
While y’all were enjoying turkey at home, Melyssa Ford took some time out of her Thanksgiving celebrations and helped the community of Atlanta by volunteering at Hosea Williams Feed the Hungry and Homeless at Turner Field. Now how many of y’all would still stay at home if you knew that you could have some grub straight from the hands of Ms Ford? Lol.
