How many stories can tell a face? How many things can say a person’s gaze?
These seem to be the questions that photographer Nima Cyrus Elm, portraitist and fashion photographer, asks himself.
Through his lens the photographic portrait becomes a tool to tell the physicality of a subject. A point of view more than an x-ray, a violent or delicate play of light and shadow that lets the irregularity and charm of the face speak.
Every choice has an emotional relapse. The will to capture a gesture, a pose, a look, builds the story, shows also the psychological presence. It transforms the subject into a person.
Nima Cyrus Elm seems to be fully aware of this.His series of film portraits dedicated to female faces and bodies collects delicate, sensual and intimate images.
