SUSAN – a duality of personas

Well… opportunity presented itself and Susan could appear again in front of my lens. It’s been a while since I shot her and a few years ago I made her a promise. Being stubborn by nature and patient by default I was intended to keep that promise. The location was known to me and from our previous chit-chat with the model, I started to draw a short film in my mind about the shooting itself. I wanted to use only available light and start the story slowly, and getting closer to the final shot step by step. Special thanks goes to “Tücsök” who helped me and the model along the shooting… This mutual effort resulted a two mini-series ( a bit chunky, I admit ) and made me aware that I like to direct stories and freeze the movie that’s running in my mind by taking screen-shots as photographs… Let’s see if I managed to waste my time and my model time efficiently! Enjoy!

With this image I ended my shooting… personally I feel I was able to produce more. More, not as quantity but quality… maybe next time. I am still experiencing how to transmit those inner feelings that takes shape in one’s mind, how to bring to light those personas we hide so much under our ego. Perhaps this is why I like photography… the journey to discover myself day by day is just as appealing like discovering the person next to me, or in front of my lens… A final group photo was taken with the people who was present on location an made that beautiful Sunday even more pleasant…  🙂
