I love to make portraits of interesting people. And April has been a very interesting month indeed. Artists, musicians and actresses. Their talent and beauty shines through. Thanks to all who helped to make it happen. Makeup for AHOUKa & Maureen shoot, Florence Thonet. Stylisme for AHOUHKa, Bea Pendesini. May? Onwards and upwards 🙂
Since I launched myself as a full-time photographer earlier this month, commissions have being coming in thick and fast. In between shoots, I’ve taken the opportunity to take casting headshots of some of the models. Voilà Gabi and her beautiful eyes.

Women are beautiful. Even the straightest of straight women will willingly acknowledge the female form is sublime. Eroticism gets a bad rap because of the power it wields. Sex is power. Power is a zero sum game? People who are interested in power, male or female, will willingly agree. People who understand that eroticism is the greatest expression of human creativity will see things differently. Porn is ubiquitous. Eroticism is an endangered species. Playboy, for all its detractors, understood the difference between the two. Porn is alive and well and celebrates subjugation. Great erotic photography is rare and is a celebration of life. Nuance?
Or for anti-porn activists
Park Life. A park in a Brussels suburb. Peace and quiet? Is silence really that silent? I worked harder on perfecting the sound of this short film than the images. We Iive in a a media saturated world with a never-ending stream of information screaming for our attention. Nature’s whispers can be just as compelling. All we have to do is listen.
