All life is in a state of flux—even something seemingly motionless is in a state of change. The stillness in each of the pictures of this series shows a deeper movement of inner life. Nothing is standing still, everything is in motion and floating… Like water… To represent that status and emotion, I´ve created these pictures.
“Simone Betz, is a fine arts photographer specializing in digital and analogue surreal portraiture.
Simone was first introduced to photography when she borrowed her dad’s old camera for a summer school class. Developing in a traditional dark room, she was intrigued by the intimacy and mystery of the process. She had her first exhibition at seventeen, showing a collection of double exposures of organic shots of her family and strangers at different ages. She traveled internationally taking portraits as a professional photographer. She then began experimenting with formal conceptual shoots, using organized settings and posed models to bring into the visual world her interior ideas and imaginings. Her work has since reflected her signature blend of dreamlike formality. She currently takes portraits and self-portraits, developing them into surreal images to access the emotional aspect of the image and tell a deeper story.”
