Editor’s Note: Each week we’ll be featuring members of the Photofocus community. Part of our New Year’s resolution is to focus on new and emerging talent. As such, Melissa Niu will personally select images from our readers and feature them here on Photofocus.
“I am a portrait photographer based in Innsbruck, Austria. The urge to reveal an inner truth of my subjects not obvious at a first glance drives my work. I like to walk a narrow line between capturing the natural appearance and injecting an artistic notion that makes the result grab the viewers’ attention. That’s where I feel subjects telling a really compelling story.
This photograph is part of a series that studies the opposing sides of our passions. Color, contrast, and tonality create a strong tension. Hesitant and uncertain expression of the model assist this feeling. Temptation is that tension before any passion takes place. This moment before is the story of this photo.”
