NIGHT DIVIDES THE DAY
He also photographed artist legends such as Christo, Richard Meyer and the late Helmut Newton.
Inspired by the Baroque painter Caravaggio as well as classic Hollywood Film Noir, his characteristic use of light and shadow dramatizes the scene and creates tension. This tension, along with the capture of a specific moment, seems to allow the viewer to get a glimpse into the soul of the subject, rather than just seeing the two-dimensional surface.
