The Illusionist

beauty editorial (published in ELLE Indonesia), March 2022

We worked with the technique LightPainting, which is to put the model in complete darkness and "paint" what you want to be seen with a torch for example (I had bought a special old machine from the 80s from a retired photographer for that).

With lightpainting you don't take too many pictures. Often it was one shot, one hit.

Working in the dark was intense. Full concentration, holding the pose and the breath. No one speaking. And then the excitement and joy seeing the results appear on the screen after 20 seconds.⁠
