I'm educated as an expressive arts therapist, have MA in psychology and work with people for last 8 years. And i'm shooting portraits for about same time.
My main focus in photography is people, who they really are, when they stop hiding behind their "masks". When they allow themselves to become vulnerable and naked in front of my camera, allow me to SEE them as they are. When they drop, even for a moment, their fear of being seen and witnessed. Actually opening up for themselves a bit more. Allowing themselves one more step to the unknown.
My project is called "Authentic portraits" and I'm trying to catch the moment when the person reveals himself in his wholeness and complexity. As far as it's possible in that moment.
Maybe it's a very ambitious goal. And maybe it's hardly possible to show the complexity of a person in just 1 portrait. I believe that person is never static, it's living, moving creature, changing, developing.
