“The body is the shell of the soul.” – Klaus Kampert
My work is mainly concerned with the human body. Still, I do not consider my images to be classic nudes or erotic photography, although these genres may have an impact on my work. I am not interested in showing beauty as an outward phenomenon. Rather I would like to present the human being as a whole: Body and mind united.
By picturing nakedness in an image, it is to reveal mind and emotion, not only showing the body as such. Among my models especially the ballet dancers are those who succeed in expressing this wholeness in a particular manner. Their bodies bespeak the constant pursuit of beauty, grace, achievement and perfection. It is my intention and my passion to display this to the viewer.
