Again and again I notice how I see people through completely different eyes when I photograph them. Even people I have known for years. As soon as I look at their face through my camera I analyse it on a whole different level. It’s crazy how many things like emotions and memories blend into the way we see a person. How we don’t see ‘flaws’ if we like them and how we don’t see beauty if we don’t like them… It’s fascinating how our heart tricks our eyes.

Bright evening with a beautiful moon-rise in Lecce.
This was just after I had the last one-on-one shooting of my workshop. I took some minutes to capture the moment of walking back through the fields. It already smelled like summer and I was happy and so tired after that busy day.
A moment of just being there and enjoying the moment. Often I hear the click of my camera and just don’t really move for some more minutes and just watch.
