"They are usually very different behind the scene." - Abraham Engelmark
Abraham refers to those who are used to being on stage, in front of the camera and those who are known for what they are good at. To capture them with their guard down. Hearing about complexes to cover up, which qualities to highlight and which to dampen down, finally made Abraham stop and take stock of his work. To fuel an ideal that is already burning did not sound in line with Abraham’s values. Instead he wants to point out the power of the uniqueness of one's self. He is determined that the message ’you are enough the way you are’ shines through every time he photographs someone.
At Dandelion Abraham presents a photo of piano maker David Klavins. A man portrayed many times before; usually as a genius, as man who performs great deeds through his hands. But Abraham gives us yet another dimension of the man; during a smoke break, with a thoughtful yet determined look in his eyes.
