“I’m used to doing everything myself. I don’t have assistants, so sometimes the preparation for the shooting takes several days and it’s accompanied by many experiments, test shootings… For example, the frame with a burning umbrella [above] was taken on the sixth day of shooting. I used more than 50 umbrellas, because I could not choose a combination of materials that made the umbrella burn beautifully and be safe for the model at the same time.” he explained. “The same story applies to each frame. I love this process, even when I realize that some effects are more easily drawn in Photoshop.”
