This project stems from wanting to show how different and alike people are at the same time – and how colorful. No one is only black and white or could be put in a box for good. My thesis is that everyone has these various shades of color that is revealed when we get close enough, but from a distance we might only see a few. The french philosopher Emmanuel Lévinas has inspired me with his two concepts totality and infinity to see that we can try to define each other or we can try to be open to the fact that we are ever changing. So I took ten of the people who I am fortunate enough to know on the inside and made them a portrait as a glimpse of their soul by photographing them through their chosen favorite nature spot – edited in the colors they had revealed me. This glimpse appeared to me for less than a second. For you, today, I’m sure they would look different and beautiful in another way.
