EYES & SOULS

There is a long-held belief in some cultures that when you take someone’s photo you steal their soul…

The reason for this collection of portraits taken between 2010 and 2014 was an attempt on my part not to steal but instead to capture through their looks the soul of women who have posed for me.

It’s no coincidence that the eyes are referred as the windows of the soul…
