To do a portrait of a person is to dig deep into his or her soul, to understand what they do and why they do it, and then make it visible. When this person is a celebrity, the job is harder because they’ve already gone through many interpretations. Still, you have to find something new. Well, in a human you can always find something new, you just have to look and listen. These portraits depict famous people in a honest and personal way, reminiscencent of early photography and the Flemish painters.
