this project is very close to my heart.
the people I photographed here have a special place in my life and heart. not because I know them well.
but because they were very gracious and opened up their hearts and shared lot’s of very precious moments with me.
I had one question for them. I did not tell them the question beforehand.
I asked after they had sat down and settled in.
“what would you consider to be the essence of a good life?”
“to reach my fullest potential, to be in my heart space, working towards the completion of my karmic cycle, sweetness, free choice to be what I want”,
were among the many answers I got.
In my approach I aim to show them in a state of contented peacefulness, creating in the viewer the wish to one day get into a similar state of mind.
the posing includes their hands and I aim to recreate gestures that have commonly recognizable meaning.
this project is not finished, I am currently working towards a book…
