Hellen Van Meene

"Hellen Van Meene is a master of portrait photography and has been so since 1996. She has been exhibited widely in museums all over the world including MOMA and the Guggenheim. Van Meene has also published several books.

Van Meene says of her work: “Before I finally take a photo, it sometimes takes ten or twenty minutes. First I give my model all the attention she needs, I really look very closely and concentrated at her before I photograph her. This approach is far from just taking out your camera and snapping, snapping, snapping away. What I do is really like a painter working on a painting – looking, making decisions…” http://blog.blendimages.com/2015/12/29/hellen-van-meene/
