I was photographed by my friend, actor, director and photographer João Hannuch, in a noir-themed, raw, emotional studio session. He instigated me to let emotions of sadness, anguish, even despair, to flow vividly from within. Posing became performing, in a way I had never experienced before.
I decided to publish this shoot in two parts. The first part (what you see here) was a warm-up, even though the resulting portraits are already stunningly full of feeling. I called it cold sweat, doubt and fear.
Whenever I revisit this shoot, a strong, strange mix of sensations always flourishes in me: longing, desire, rejection, lust, spite, relief. What do you feel by looking at these images? I’d love to hear you.
