I would like to go on record right now before the CSI episode is even written and say that THE AGENT DID IT.

That is too bad and she wasn't even at the zenith of her career. Since politics and other controversial topics are not to be discuseed on this forum (nor should they) I'll keep my comments/theories about why this will continue to happen to myself. IMO photographers are not the blame and I applaud Spain's efforts. It's a small step in the right direction.

Actually I'm not sure "modeling" can be blamed for this ubfoirtunate death. Certainly the death of a young woman is tragic and certainly "fashion" puts too much emphasis on being thin, but at 5'8" and 88 pounds, I suspect she would lose out on more gigs than she would get. She would look like a Nazii concentration camp survivor than a model. Thin might be good for a fashion model, but this goes way beyond thin and the desiger's new outfits would hang on her frame shapelessly, more like on a coat hanger. There 'is' such a thing as 'too thin' for modeling. I suspect her psychological problems were personal to her and should not be blamed on modeling.

Earlier this year I did a private shoot with a lady of about the same height but about 10 pounds heavier. She obviously had psychological problems which I inadvertently fell into. I was paid at the time of the shoot, but she never even bothered to pick up her prints and CD and will still not respond to my emails. I have an envelope with her prints and CD which, which she has never seen and which I'm still holding for her. This lady was not a model and had no interest in modeling, but in her mid 30s was well established in a career.

I'm not at all sure modeling can be blamed for this tragic death.
