“It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness.” – Paul Strand.
This project is all about documenting subconscious feelings. When used correctly, a camera gives the ability to break the invisible wall people often create as a self-defense mechanism, reveling their true nature for at least one microsecond. This window of opportunity offers the photographer a chance to immortalize the expression of their true inner feelings.
These images represent more than the physical expression they portray, they represent a meditative state of mind, one which could only be achieved when the subject closes the eyes and gets in touch with his or her inner visions. With this process I try to find my own subconscious feelings through these images, which then instantly merges with the feelings of the spectator, resulting in a unique experience for each one of the viewers.
The composition of the photos is very simple and straight forward. I take the photos in my apartment in New York to every person I can: myself, family, friends, and strangers. Up to date more than 50 persons have posed for me and my camera.
