(e)MOTION

For my video-photo project (e)MOTION, I ask people to make some little videos of themselves with their phones. This series started during the pandemic and allows me to work with models from all over the world, people that I could never meet otherwise. This project would not have been possible without social networking.

I ask the models to move with their bodies in front of their cameras. They can be nude or in underwear. Authenticity is important for this project. I don’t want to take control, so I don't intervene when the models make the video. They express with their body and soul what they want. I only give some technical advise and ask to use a minimalist background.

With an application, I choose stills in the video and work on them. The project captures model’s intimacy and emotions. It is at the same time a study of movement..

I’m very grateful to all of the participants. The project is going on.
