“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. Thats 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.”
