The base image has been photographed in Nerja, Spain, 2007.
What is the meaning of L'une ?
It is a double meaning word. I found it appropriate for this series; in French it means "the one" (she), and "Lune" - moon.
It's a moody portraits series, where I want to express the fragility and beauty of the woman features, by trying to capture a moment, an impression. They seem reflexive, or day dreaming, or maybe slipping into a melancholic, undefined mood.
I have an enormous amount of photos, taken by me, over the years. Despite the fact that I've been taking photos since I was a child, I've never considered myself a photographer. Because I never set my goal to make a living out of it. But I stored many ideas, I enjoyed discovering and experimenting different ways to express myself..
I had my own photo lab and developed the photos like a pro, in the (still) film camera era (the '90). I've recently found that - using my photos and combining digital work with my drawings or paintings, suits me perfectly. And, this formula actually allows me the freedom to express in a wider range of mediums.
If you are interested in different size or formats, just drop me a message, and I will check out what alternatives I can offer you.
