My name is Edith Hoffman. I am a Fine Art Photographer.
Twenty-five years ago I started with painting and only a few years ago I switched over to photography.
You have an image very quickly that instantly can give you inspiration. However, I also didn’t want to give up painting. I therefore kept a secret wish to combine these two passions to create a personal style.
When I start a project, I don’t always have a complete, preconceived idea of exactly what I’m going to do. I simply surrender myself to the environment and the situation whilst waiting for that particulair one and only moment.
My main subject is people. I develop a very intense relationship with the people, who are modeling in my work. I especially regard those special moments of interactions and personal conversations. Some of these models even become friends. Working in this atmosphere, I can get very energetic and receive lots of inspiration. By cherishing this special relationship between the model and myself, the work becomes effortless with a wonderful sense of freedom.
For me, everyone is beautiful and unique; that is what I actively promote in my work.
As a counterpart, I also like the creative subject without any human interest at all.
I hardly can’t wait to see where my journey will take me next.
