Portraits of celebrities, but not the conventional kind. In these photos, the celebrity stands behind the camera, role-swapping with the photographer. Whereas celebrities (especially actors) normally pose for the camera to be caught on film, they now act as director or photographer, creating a portrait that suits their own ideas. In like manner, I as the photographer switched sides to assume the role of the model. I prepared the props, costumes and setting according to the ideas of the person taking the picture – suggestions came from both sides – I took care of the technique and acted in front of the camera. In that way, a joint work of art was created.
