Portraits

Portraiture is probably my favourite photography expression. Each portrait is a unique experience and it goes way beyond a mere image. Portraying people it is a way to interact with them, to establish a profound connection and a bond between human beings.
Taking a portrait takes time. I talk and share some of my life with my subjects and they do the same, the picture is just the tip of the iceberg.
While photographing another human being I am in a space where I let go of everything else until something special happens between myself and the subject and I realise that they are offering the photograph to me.

Personal

Photographing someone I know is an experience which takes me way beyond the definition of the rapport between myself and the subject. All barriers, labels, concepts disappear and both the subject and the photographer reveal themselves in a new light which gives room to a potential new relationship. I believe portrait photography is powerfully healing.
