Sri Mahamariamman, Elegance Magazine, Kuala Lumpur 1991
“They offered me the opportunity to produce stories of more than eight pages right away.
The pictures I shot with photographer Bart van Leeuwen in Kuala Lumpur, I still like.
They’re made with respect for people and culture: the models didn’t wear bikinis, but long dresses and lots of layers. That’s important to me. My work doesn’t have to be ‘hip’. What’s more: I’ve never been hip! To me it’s all about atmosphere and emotion.” –
