“Mien Me” is an ongoing project by Alexander Benz He started it in late 2015 and is based on his earlier work where he has used high speed film to document people around him in a nonintrusive way.

 

Most subjects in his work are strangers and he often only gets a brief moment of interaction. He is interested in the relationship between people and their every-day environment, how they fit into this world, metaphorically and literally speaking.

 

The work happens naturally, but most of the pictures are reenactments of something seen at that very moment. An instant that is slightly staged there and then only, blurring the line between documentary and purely set up photography. He likes to portray the people he photographs as intimate as possible and show what the person radiates naturally, reflecting an identity based on his observation.
