It’s over a month ago when I visited Monterey. Looking at that time from a bigger perspective gives a new meaning to this trip.
I can’t believe it’s been a year since I’ve visited Iceland. So much has happened over this time.
A place of contrasts, nothing and everything next to each other. Plains, highlands, mountains, water in all states and the restless ocean. Calm, peaceful people and wild animals. Sky seems to be richer here as the horizon seems much further than anywhere else.
I only had 4 days to explore the island, but they aren’t my last. I feel a strong connection to this land. I want to get back and leave my footprint, a part me there.
“After so many years of photographing people I finally understand why my pictures are so sensual, why I adore women’s body, why I have this ease while portraying loving couples.
I frame what I crave for.
I press the shutter button when I feel most excited and turned on. I lust for a beautiful body models have, the gentle gestures and passionate kisses that lovers share.
These are my dreams coming true, my vision of perfection coming alive.”
Santa Cruz is a place made of sun, sea salt, rocks and good vibes. Windy and chilly evening spent by the shore was absolutely unforgettable. Vegan burgers and skateboarding were of course also part of the trip.
I find myself dancing in an empty room. A good beat rises in the speakers, I don’t think, I just start moving my hips and go frenzy. Alone in a big house.
Is this how freedom tastes like? I love it! I feel liberated (no, I didn’t drink wine that day). But in a way it also scares me.
It will end, it cannot go on forever. Soon I will be bored, frightened for my future, probably depressed.
Can you already imagine those bipolar emotions I experience? And it’s only the beginning…
