Body Image Project — Passion and future dreams
It has always been my passion to photograph people. The contact and interaction between photographer and the person being portrayed has fascinated me since I started taking photographs at the age of 14.
In particular, being able to portray women is like a gift for me, because as a woman, I can intuitively grasp what the photographed person is all about.
The forever young, beauty and slimming delusion that is created and used by the beauty industry is a like a fatal argument that often weighs on women and weakens their self-esteem in times of exaggerated beauty image retouching.
Having worked in the cosmetic industry for many years as a professional photographer, I know that these ideologies and industry culture are always present, when portraying women.
So, back in Germany (after almost a decade in Buenos Aires, Argentina) – It’s my dream to open a women’s photography space. Our main focus is specifically on individual photographs, of women and for women, but it would also be possible to create wonderful images of sisters, mothers and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters and best girlfriends.
In short, a place where women feel secure and safe. The trust between photographer and model, and above all the trust in ourselves prevail.
All women are beautiful and unique but they are being subjectified in glossy advertising magazines on a daily basis. Women are subtly being made to believe that they are far from beautiful and unique.
However, I am not for the total rejection of retouching images and against the beauty industry, but I do stand for the recovery of a natural way of dealing with oneself and one’s own individual beauty and aesthetics.
I also do not want to exclude men, rather, I am concerned with the creation of a space in which women can deal freely and without prejudice with their body and their individual charisma.
A portrait photography shoot is always more than just taking a few nice pictures.
Back in Germany, after almost 10 years and a lot of professional experience, I see the women’s photo project as a challenge and a huge opportunity.
