AUTHENTIC PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
Portraits that celebrate our presence in the world.
“Because I was trained in the academic tradition of painting and I have always been inspired by the old masters such as Andrej Roebljov, Hans Holbein, Vermeer van Delft and the others, the way I perceive the sitter in my role as a photographic artist is also influenced by this classical tradition. I conform to a minimalistic style of portraiture with an empty but coloured background which accentuates the silhouette of the sitter as in an icon. The way light falls is very important and I usually take my photographs in natural daylight. I believe that simplicity in itself has a powerful effect and concentrates all attention upon the person who is being portrayed.” – Lucy Besson
