Real Indications
Project info

For ten years now Heiko Tieman has assiduously created this gallery of portraits which feature family and friends as well as strangers. Little by little they provide him with the indications, gestures and expressions which inspire the scenes he photographs. These images go to the heart of the tensions which surround the act of portraiture: conflicting temptations to show or to hide, to reveal all or become opaque, to ignore the other or to act in reaction to him.
