Light and shadow are the essence of my work. Detailed portraits and faces with character mean challenge to me. To sum up: in every person there is a certain je-ne-sais-quoi and that's what I bring to light. You don't have to be a model to make a photogenic impression, as radiance comes into existence through character.
