Photographs and words by Ana Santl

“The most adorable thing about working with women, especially when tête-à-tête, is the dialogue which flows over the course of the shooting – no matter if verbal or non-verbal” explains Berlin-based Ana Santl. The young woman we see in the photographs is Alina Hoven from Minsk, Belarus.

“The most adorable thing about working with women, is the dialogue no matter if verbal or non-verbal.”

They both met last summer in Berlin. “From the very first moment I saw Alina, I wanted to photograph her.” Her wish came true. “Alina as a person inspired me”, she adds.
24-year-old Santl is originally from Slovenia and has been living in Berlin for almost four years.
