Portrait photography

Portraits of persons in their own environment, spontaneous, life-like or Studio Portrait either with the relation among photographer and subject or the photographer hiding in its invisibility behind the camera.

Posed Portrait, the human becoming object, the object receiving life. The magic of the old times, the tension of the preparation, the release coming with the sound of the camera shutter.
I shoot two images only, in 4x5" b/w plate, different positions, in a quest for perfection. Artistic power of the view-camera.
