Because I wanted to give my subjects a chance to express themselves but also to give myself an opportunity to express how I perceive those same subjects, I began to think about a study.
“Études”, as the title suggests, is a study – a study of people. I wanted something more stripped down to give the subject a chance to connect with the viewer on a deeper level and to reveal something more intimate. Spontaneity, improvisation and fashion as well as a good dose of good humour is what “Études” can be sum up to. And there is another word I consider to be very important and that must be added to describe those sessions: sincerity.
Through Études, I want to share what the subject and I have to offer. It’s a very personal project and you will see at times, numerous chapters about one person. Numerous chapters only mean that I want to explore more aspects of that person because I believe, people are surprising and they never cease to grow and amaze me. I also hope that my pictures will tell you more about the respect, love and fascination I have for them.
