Medium format portraits of the artist Ana Noble and the photographer Stefan Wigand.


Medium Format Portraits Shot on Expired Film

Mexico City

I took these portraits on my medium format Mamiya. Of course my cat managed to muscle himself into a few shots. This was not the plan. I knew Ana would be an amazing subject, she is so statuesque as well as obviously being exceptionally beautiful. But more than anything, I knew that she would let me direct her and Stefan (who is incidentally also a professional photographer) freely to get the images I was after. Trust can sometimes be key to the process of portraiture, trust or letting oneself go. Although not always, tension, discomfort and resistance can also be interesting and meaningful companions.
