I have been working on each of my projects for a long time and slowly, for years ….. I get great pleasure from it !
JJ, March 2023
JJ: A mature body presented deliberately, calmly. Expressive face, eloquent look. A record of life on the skin – wrinkles, scars, birthmarks, spots, and blemishes. Gray hair, blue veins visible under thin skin, changed hands… The passage of time is a theme that can be shown through the body in a spectacular, fullest, unique way. How to do it differently?!
