MY APPROACH TO PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
“With the help of pure photography, we are able to make portraits that show their subjects absolutly truthfully and in their whole psychology … I hope to give a true psychology on our time and our people ”.
August Sander, 1925.
Every photographic portrait pursues a balance between the psychological interest of person and the sociological interest he represents. Making a portrait is always a complex decision because the resulting image contributes to determine how you are perceived. With these two last thoughts and with the creation of these collaborative and interactive relationships between the photographed and the photographer, this is where I place my approach to portrait photography.
