Get an insight into the raw and beautiful nature of photographer Stefan Deyn’s work. I got a chance to ask him just what moves and inspires him.
Introduce yourself and how you got into photography.
My name is Stefan Deyn and I grew up in Carpentras in the South of France.
I’m 24 years old. These kinds of questions always make me think a lot. I would love to know when or where it came from. When I moved to Budapest 3 years ago I started to shoot girls.
Do you plan your shoots or is there a more natural approach?
Natural approach and I like to improvise. I keep the moment lively while I shoot the girl.
Film or digital and why?
Film! Because is absolutely beautiful, it is where photography came from. I think a moment is even more beautiful when it is shot with an analogue camera.
What story are you trying to tell with your photographs.
Really I don’t know! Photography is my way of documenting the best parts of my life, for me is to make a copy of reality and to create something unique in the same image.
Do you have a favorite subject or muse to photograph?
I pretty much shot my girlfriend and girls for me are incredible. I really like woman who has presence, the woman that can silence a room when they walk in. It’s not the way they look, it’s their personality that just sucks you in.
You’re based in France, where would you like to travel to for photography if you could go anywhere?
