My fascination with the human figure as a medium in itself is ever-increasing. Collaborating with people like Martha who is by trade, a handstand contortionist is like hitting the jackpot for me. Her immense control over every bone, muscle and ligament is staggering and leads to mind-blowing poses. The cherry on top was her ability to fine-tune the poses in order to create perfect balance and then hold them long enough for me to take several shots of each one. The name of the series comes from the fact that she really pushed herself for each shot and thanks to that effort and dedication, these images came out as beautiful as I could ever hope.
Muse: Martha D.
