my eye on landscape – portrait of a landscape

My eye on your landscape
A portrait can be made in different ways. I, recently, could make a portrait of some entrepreneurs. A portrait shaped by a landscape. Yes, indeed, my eye on landscape, a portrait of a landscape. And one of those ‘portraits’ will soon be exposed in the office of one on those entrepreneurs. That will be a very special moment.
It is an intriguing way of making photographs. These are assignments, which take some time. These pictures take time to grow. How do I look at someone, what do I see and which landscape will arise? A fascinating process.
The image of the entrepreneur arises after an extensive talk. Then the process starts of translating it into a landscape. Key words become clear and the exploration to a conforming landscape follows. And finally the image arises in the landscape. Not before but on the spot.
The above photograph is such a ‘portrait’ of an entrepreneur. This is someone who is very much grounded, a solid base. This entrepreneur is also able to reflect, to present you a mirror, is connected with the world around her and is also capable to show you the other side of a situation.
For me this way of working, looking and taking photographs is very special. It arose at the moment that I thought how to integrate the human being into my landscapes.
And it is a great present for the recipient, so I have noticed. If you think what was it like? Than you only have to look at your portrait.
