Making somebory's portrait is learning to know them but also offering them a different way to see themselves. My work as a portrait photographer is mainly based on mutual exchange between model and photographer. In the studio, I use lighting in a straightworward way, with no shadows. There is no recipe or predefined pose to be reproduced with different models. I do not seek to transform a person but rather to reveal to them how I see them.
