This is a quick insight in my thesis called "From observation to provocation" which shows a research about my view on vulnerability, personal space, body language and erotic tension. In this thesis/book i will approach different angles of observation and provocation methods. The triangle between the photographer, model and camera. It originated from my graduation project "Closing In'. Which literally means coming closer. It underlines aspects like finding the right distance, voyeurism, looking and vulnerability. It shows how people react when they find themselves in an unusual private situation, being captured and how they are forced in a way to let go of control, and cannot hide from their physical emotion. It works like a mirror.
When are we really vulnerable? How do we deal with personal space? When does it become too akward? Is there a pattern? How far are people willing to go to expose themselves or cross their own border? In this book it is all about the subtle movements in their face and body when exposed, and how close I can get as a stranger. Those pronounced seconds. The sequences. The transition from being tense to relaxed. I lose some kind of control in this process but it allows me to stay, and be something other then a mere spectator. The essential in the nature of the situation I provoke is the tension that is released beyond my control. When I enter the space of nudity, I see it more as a platform for our expressions or our fears, our passions, who we are. After all its a challenge to capture emotion in an image.
This book is a preview compared to how the real book is going to be, whichI am working on right now. It will contain new people, new insights and different cultures. Also it still has to be published. So if you are interested in the next edition of the book, for pre-ordering (this one is the thesis version) please send an email to: email@example.com
