"Many people are anxious when they’re about to be photographed: not because they fear, as primitives do, being violated but because they fear the camera’s disapproval."
Our perception of people is transformed as we approach and get to know them, as we penetrate into their world...
...the same way that their face gets distorted when we bring our camera closer and we invade their personal space.
"There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer",

"I started this series at photography school, portraying everyone passing by the studio. Since then it has become a habit for me, one that I will hardly be able to take away; I think that I will continue with this until the day I stop taking photographs.
This project is forever a work in progress."
