Achim D

 Chiaroscuro (Italian for “light/dark”)

Caravaggio is one of my favorite painters,  so I knew I wanted the subject to glow against a kind of shroud of inky blackness. Hair, eyes, little pieces of textured clothing–these were the things I wanted to highlight. They needed to come out of black nothingness.


But funny enough my fave photo from the evening was not one I was planning.


As part of my 2013 project I was joined by Marcello and Achim modelled, the idea was base the shoot around an old photo that was taken some time in the 1930′. I also wanted to keep the whole shoot to a low key lighting style.
