Eine ungewöhnliche, aber enorm spannende Aufgabe: die Begleittexte eines Fotobandes für einen der bedeutendsten Aktfotografen der Welt ins Deutsche zu adaptieren.
The subjects I’ve chosen to photograph share a certain uniqueness in their own state of isolation. Often, shrouded in an environment devoid of props, the subjects are left to improvise with only their bodies as a resource. Occasionally, the introduction of a chair, vase or other miscendary prop, offers some relief from an otherwise barren environment. Allowing each individual to respond instinctively within this framework, created as honest a portrait as I felt I could have achieved. The pictures, often being duplicitous, represent an overwiew of the subject when regarded as a whole. Often, for me, the most subtle change in body language can convey an entirely different side to one’s personality. Sometimes the subjects appear inquisitive; othertimes almost defiant. At once shy and introverted, other images take on an almost uncomfortable air being nude in front of the camera. It is often that feeling of tension and unrest that brings a certain sexual vulnerability to the photograph.
