M. and C. met in Dortmund, Germany.M. was the model, C. the photographer. During the portrait sessions, the photographer´s typical approach to taking pictures began to falter, and gradually the portrait situation turned into a fight for power. Countering the plain backgrounds and sparse spaces, M. was trying to present himself in front of the camera according to his own ideas. These acts of self empowerment over his own image characterize M. as a modern man and allow him to be truly visible through the pictures.
