His work is meant to be an ode to humans in which models are displayed in their purest forms. As part of a minimalist approach, his work leaves no room for any tricks so as to focus only on the essential.
The choice of black and white reinforces this wish by avoiding the potential distractions of colour.
At a time when the eye is bombarded by excessively retouched imagery and is conditioned to only perceive the dramatic, the artist invite you to appreciate the authenticity of his photos by tempting to suggest a return to the basics. For this purpose, he uses no tricks while shooting. A purist, he makes exclusive use of natural light while shooting, therefore attempting to reinforce the satisfying mix of emotion and spontaneity
