Contemporary – A Photographic Project By Danny Prusseit

The project is inspired by the idea of creating a contemporary document and what might be better than taking a picture. To keep the moment as clear as possible I only used one flash unit and one reflector. I abandon the option of backlight and captured the faces in front of a black mollitan. After the shooting the model was invited to choose the most liked photo – for me a very interesting part of the project. That followed a slight post processing.

Contemporary is primarly a very personal project. It creates a contemporary document for me – a fixed moment of a friendship. Therefore, I kept the cycle of people small. Among good friends of mine, you also see my sister and my girlfriend in the following selection.
