Ziya means light and I find it perfect for this luminous portrait of this 12-year-old girl.
It is still one of my favorite portraits today.
Ziya is a young girl living in Amsterdam. It was when I saw her going up and down in my building that one day I asked her if she would agree to pose for me.
I wanted to capture this face of purity and gentleness. Both shy, the expression passed through my fingers in a union of silence, lulled by the music.
