I invite you to follow me in a intimate journey in 2013 where I will open the gates of my personal world to you. I will show you not only my day to day work but my personal projects and how I operate hoping to inspire you to be curious and explore your inner world too. As you probably know photography for me is primarily a tool to celebrate life. But how this came about? When I started photography almost 20 years ago my camera was a tool of discovery and became almost instantly the extension of my eyes. It gave me the possibility to research my long time curiosity: “Who or what are we as human beings?” What is hidden within this body? Will I ever been able to touch this delicate soul? How could I capture it?
Since inception, my search has always been to reach the core of who we are.
I became my first subject to explore… my eternal companion
Through trials and errors I accidentally discovered multiple exposures and decided to give it a try. It was love at first sight.
The multi layered image seems to me to be more realistic in a way as it uncovers the multiple layers of our inner world.
Multiple exposures is so easy and fun to experiment with a digital camera. Most new models have this setting in their menu. But you might have to look for it as it is not always obvious. I invite you to try it out. It’s great fun and you are most likely to be blown away with your results. It takes some practice if you have a particular idea in mind but if I were to start I would only go with the instinct. A fun way to experiment at home for example is to take your pet’s portrait & then put yours on top, a blast!
Feel free to post your results on my facebook page to explore your vision. Have fun.
