Stephen Cotterell at work

I invited a portrait photographer Stephen Cotterell to a project documenting people at work. I chose Stephen knowing his passion for photography, life curiosity and his love for people. My aim was to show the way he works creating a safe space for photographed people, letting them open up in front of him and his camera. 

The models were a boxer and a ballerina photographed in a boxing club. Stephen has never met them before apart from exchanging few emails. I was an invisible observer documenting moments of unfolding energy between this trio. That day a boxing club in London became for me a background of a beautiful visual dance. So here it is, please enjoy my photo story.

Beautiful series! And I really like your compositions, colour balance and processing! Something tells me that this Behind The Scenes might actually be more interesting than the real shoot :-)
