THE ART PIECE
For her series, Senta Simond has shot a series of portraits of close-ups of young women. Her subjects are not professional models but women from her surroundings – authentic, natural, unaffected. The images allow the viewers to fully immerse themselves in the beauty of the subject’s gaze as their eye travels over the portrait like a painting.
In this picture, Lucia’s face, seen from the side, is illuminated by light as she looks beyond the figure of the photographer. She is at once presenting herself to the gaze of the photographer, yet absent and eternally unfathomable.
