EYE CONTACT

 

I’m deeply fascinated by and drawn to eyes. During the last three years, the main focus of my photographic journeys - bringing me to Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Finland, USA and Brazil - has been searching for “eye contact” with charismatic wildlife species, i.e., situations where I’m able to get so close to my animal models that I can take portraits focusing on their facial expressions and the look in their eyes.

When eyes are hit by the sun in just the right angle, they light up as if an incandescent bulb had been turned on inside of them, revealing colors and details otherwise hidden. I always try to capture my wildlife motives with such a glow in their eyes.
