Who I am & what I do

Born in Liege, Belgium. I discovered the excitement of photography at the age of 10, spending half of my free time camera in hand and the other half processing my black and white photographs in the dark room. Through the years, I explored landscape, architecture and portrait photography. One of my projects during my studies was the creation of a 50-page glossy fashion magazine, entirely made of exclusive photographic material. From then on, I became fascinated by fashion and fashion photography.

My images start from a specific creation process, every picture beginning with the selection of a personae imagined for a specific model. As models connect with the personae, guided by my description, they reveal the depth of their character. That's when one defining aspect of my pictures emerges: duality. Exterior and interior, sharp lines, soft emotions, strong attitude but fragile regard.

A selection of pictures is on display on www.stephaniefraikin.com.
