Erdem Karapolat contacted us to share his excellent portrait work. Erdem is a photographer based in Austria who creates portraits that show a deep connection with the subject. Erdem modestly referred to his photos as snapshots, but they are truly so much more.
my work is about people.
I am interested in people and their stories. the person’s charisma.
There are many people that still are originals.
And they are little stars for me. so i want a portrait of them looking like someone famous.
Because that’s what they are for me.
I take their stories with me and i try to reflect something of them in my pictures.
I hang around with them and after having created a certain mood I take a picture.
Sometimes i just say ” hey, can i try something with my cam here ?”
And that’s it.
