I believe in Simplicity
After a terrible experience in NYC (HERE) suffocating in an office job and finding myself in Paris (HERE), I had to figure out what I was going to spend my days and night doing. Because I must admit I am a pretty obsessive person.
As a girl reading Fashion magazines since I was a child, I had always been visual and drawn to the story telling process of photography. Classic Fashion photographers like Paolo Roversi and Peter Lindbergh had always been huge sources of inspiration for me.
So creating iconic and classic portraits, playing with black and white contrast, styling others and creating a mood for photo shoots became my favorite thing to do. I can now obsess over my photo shoots in Paris and over the world and yet feel like I am just having fun.
Like these portraits my talented friend Albert Roig took of me on my favorite bridge in Paris on a cold evening of winter, I am drawn to timeless portraiture. Being in such an iconic city like Paris helps of course. But when it comes to portraits I really believe in simplicity, in film photography to capture the essence of my subjects and in slowing down to get the most honest images possible.
I love the muted colors of these photos taken on a freezing day in Paris and the cosy atmosphere of my apartment I loved so much. It is exactly what I want to convey in my work: an emotional connection that will make you travel back in time to this exact moment in your life when you were in front of my lens.
