Group Portrait

with the Maria Baptist Orchestra

Vanity Fair Style Group Portrait Berlin

One of my biggest inspirations in contemporary photography is Annie Leibovitz, who is among the most influential photographers of our time and a master of group portraits. Every year she creates a three-page group photo with the most popular Hollywood stars for Vanity Fair magazine. Inspired by this, I have created this image for the Maria Baptist Orchestra.

The process of creating the picture is quite sophisticated: we lit and photographed each musician separately. I put the individual portraits together as a whole image in post-production. Through this method, the group portrait takes on a painterly quality with Rembrandt-like lighting.
