The proces of writing a novel and making an image is in my view mainly a temporal difference. Not a substantial one. Anita Shreve stated: “A novel is a collision of ideas. Three or four threads may be floating around in the writer's consciousness, and at a single moment in time, these ideas collide and produce a novel.” Replace ‘novel' by ‘photograph' and ‘writer' by ‘writer with light' and you are in the proces of making a photograph. As far as I am concerned…
My photos are female-dominated, but the actors are not on stage to simply offer their beauty or sensuality, they are enscenated to express a sentiment or emotial perception…
My models may be glamourous but not exposed as such, they have a deducted sensuality, they are self-determining agents, their outer beauty is a phenomenon we can fall back on in an unexplainable human existence.
