Inspired by light, passion and mystery. All images are copy-writed to myself, unless stated otherwise. No images may be used without consent.

In my opinion intimate and private are both the same thing, I think if something is intimate it should be kept private between the people. Intimacy brings to mind a relationship between two or more people, and I wouldn’t want to see photographs of them being close. This is something people should keep private as it is special, like hugging or kissing.

Craigie Horsfield

Photographs form a small but significant part of Horsfield’s practice. Most of his recent works were made as part of collaborative social projects. As with much of his work, they are concerned with how we stand in relation to one to another, how relation, constantly in flux, determines community and how individuality is inextricably bound to relation, rather than alienation or separation. Horsfield integrates elements that are usually given over to politics, philosophy and ethics, so that art forms only one element among others in a complete thought process.

The photographers we looked at in this lecture all managed to talk their way into getting more intimate portraits of people. This makes the people in the pictures seem human, even if they are celebrities. But just photographing someones face, even if you have talked to them to get to know them, I wouldn’t say this is an intimate moment. An intimate moment is one spent with loved ones or family.
