Two beautiful women

I photographed these two beautiful women end of last year. Photographer Marieta Landkroon with a Mamiya RB67 on slidefilm while shooting with her in Amsterdam. Anne Beeftink as part of a larger shoot in her apartment with my Pentax 645D. Sophie van Bijleveld did make up and hair there, thanks! While portraits are at least as much about the photographer as they are about the photographee, even almost entirely about the photographer in some cases, I try to reveal something true or at least truthful about the model in a photograph. Without, the photograph can not stand as a portrait. It is very slippery territory, photography being inherently false. I still have not figured out what it is that viewers perceive as true in images. There is some consensus though, for me it seems to start with simplicity and the absence of ambiguity. Enjoy the photographs. I would love to hear what you think.
