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.
