about the artwork
The images submitted are a brief cut throw my work, and they come from various projects. Some are individual portraits, l some are part of larger series.  I have worked with people from quite opposite backgrounds - from very privileged to socially deprived, both being an incredible experience. The use of strong colours and repetitiveness plays a major role in my aesthetics.

about the artwork
.beauty is in everyone everyone is beautiful. .being different is beautiful. I started a new project this year I started this year with a new photo project. In which I want to show that beauty and thus also beauty photography is not just related to a small group of people. But everyone is beautiful. In beauty photography, only perfect ideals are often staged. This bored me and I wanted to show how much more fascinating people and beauty there are. This is the first part of the project in which I photographed Tamara Röske, a model with Down syndrome. It was a pleasure to meet her, not only is she one of the most open and welcoming people I know. She is also full of energy and ambitions. From acting and modeling to clarinet playing in the orchestra and swimming competitions, she does it all with ease. She is a beautiful person in and out, that I was lucky to meet.

about the artwork
Anne Menke portraitierte für die VOGUE Mexico wunderschöne mexikanische Frauen. Die Bilder haben eine unglaublich natürliche Wirkung wodurch die Schönheit der indigenen Gesichtszüge deutlich herausstechen. Vier der sieben Frauen sind keine Modelle, die anderen drei haben gerade erst mit ihrer Modellkarriere begonnen. Dadurch wirken die Bilder umso natürlicher. Die Fotos sollen keine Ideale der Modewelt zeigen, sondern reale Frauen zu denen andere aufsehen können um sich mit ihnen zu identifizieren. Jedes einzelne Bild besitzt eine individuelle und wunderbare Ausstrahlung. Durch die schlichten Hintergründe, den wenigen Accessoires und dem Schwarzweiß der Bilder liegt der Fokus deutlich auf den Gesichtern. Anne Menke erfaßte, mit ihrem Blick für das Besondere, die einzelnen Schönheiten in Sayulita, einem wunderschönen Dorf an der mexicanischen Pazifikküste. Creative Direktion von Debbie Smith. Das Styling übernahm Max Ortega Govela, Hair Lisa-Raquel Baines und Make-up Ana Marie Rizzieri.

about the artwork
NINETY MINUTES This series of portraits is all about the short interaction of a gosee. I shot them within the last two years. Not more than ninety minutes between saying hello, talking a bit, getting to know who the other person is and capturing some frames. I think this way of taking pictures in a set situation is the rawest. Especially with not too experienced models, there is an authenticity in every movement.  Enjoy! Nikk

about the artwork
Lena Burmann draws inspiration from life with real people and real stories in focus. She crafts highly intricate yet seamless narratives, with a raw authenticity conveying the synergy between her and her model, and every photo a story unto its own. Playing with natural light to great effect, she imbues her photos with a melancholic atmosphere in an almost poetic manner; unassuming and serene, Burmann's work is captivating by essence of its simplicity.
