Photographing women

I think the desire to capture beauty is first and foremost a feature of my artistic ideals. The creation of subject is to me a means of translating that which is naturally beautiful into an image. An image that not only celebrates but accentuates the individual. My photography is very egocentric in its subject portrayal, I enjoy the intimate process of creating a subject. I often direct the creative process, assisting in make-up, styling and presentation.  I like to guide the process and translate my aesthetic appreciation of the subject into the image. In that sense I feel my photography is very personal, and represents a relationship between me and the intended subject.

On beauty

Beauty is it relative? Or is a stylised ideal dictated by norms? What triggers our perception of beauty? Do we simple appreciate that which is fed through stylistic preference and normative behaviour or do we perceive with the natural eye?
