To Any Season'
This picture is the opening to many things in my photography life.
It is probably the picture that I am most grateful for. It resonates with a lot of people.
I took this picture with a lot of emotion. I went without my camera, early in the morning. I ‘saw’ the picture. And I did what I often do: take a picture with my phone, because that helps me to frame already. The next morning I went back, and I was even more lucky because there was light on the water. The whole scene was prettier than the day before. Sometimes you’re so extremely happy with the light.
It was a special moment: these kind of flowers only happen for a couple of weeks a year.
You would never believe it if you saw the place now, but that day, I was in a very emotional moment in my life. This picture continues to create emotion in people. I’ve seen many people loving it.
The birth of color
I had planned, at a certain moment, to take a picture that was very colourful. I came from being a student, taking portraits, things that were very standard: that's how you get educated.
But I have a thing for colours, and then I was thinking, "I want this kind of landscape where I can see the layers of the landscape, but then in colours". This was a random moment, but I realised this could be the picture that would help me in this direction.
At the end of August, it will be 3 years since this picture was taken, and I still remember everything that happened after and during the time that I was making this series, and especially this image. I always call it my baby. I still see it and I’m thinking, "how come I don’t have it hanging in my home?"
My baby, stay here forever
It has a lot of emotions. A lot of people who choose to buy it, don’t see it as a picture; they tend to interpret someting of their own feelings in it. It always creates something.
I know that the intention you have when you’re taking the picture, when you réally have an intention, it has the capacity to reflect and project onto someone else.
Even now, when I’m showing them to you, I still get trapped. When you have appreciation for something, it is reflected in it everytime, and I’m like: ‘my baby, stay there forever’.
