Photographing people has been my main focus for quite a while now. Showing the character, the emotions and the beauty of men and women regardless of age and origin is my goal.
To achieve it, I decided to go back to analogue photography.
The uniqueness of the captured moment, the emotions that only exist within this split-second while the shutter is open can best be captured by a medium that implies the same level uniqueness. There is only one negative, hence one original image, showing the characters.
My goal is to encourage the model to avoid stereotype posing, to be emotional and try to create what I call raw nude portraits. I am trying to capture expressions first and foremost – showing the models as strong and powerful individuals. I am not afraid to go far beyond usual beauty conventions.
