Nowadays, it is no longer obvious whether we are looking at "real" images or fake ones because they are all manipulated and photoshopped. But representing real people with their imperfections is far more interesting for me!

Generally, I use a Hasselblad analog camera and work at making my pictures appear more realistic. I try to depict the human being as a part of nature rather than as an object.

These photos are my reaction against the examples of fashion photography in which the personality of the individual is irrelevant. Instead, I aim to let the authenticity of the body speak for itself. A manipulated body gives us a wrong perception of reality anyway.
