The idea behind this series was to challenge myself. Photographing a celebrity isn’t always easy, but they are usually people with a strong presence. I wanted to test myself from all angles, creating a relationship with the subject, and come out with a decent picture. I also wanted to have a little fun, otherwise it would have been a bore. Whether or not I succeeded, that’s for you to decide.
