Hamburg photographer Timo Frank, aka Timo Le Fronque, with this image of a pale skinned dancer, crouched yet leaping, provides us a study in nude whitish tones, which draws viewers in as effectively as bare white light bulbs draw in moths.
For Timo, it all started with graffiti in 1993.
“I sprayed characters so I had to think about plasticity (depth effect), light & shadows.
After a while, I started to paint in oils and acrylics.”

I love to work in a fictional way. It´s a fine line between futuristic photodesign and commercial retouch sold as reality.

In the near future, I look forward to working on bigger sets around the world.

Choice of camera is not important for me. I don´t want to promote any label.
And I also don´t want to talk about single pictures in a technical way.
