björn andrésen

tazio 2
well, not only tadzio the boy played by björn andrésen is something so beautiful and inspirational, a photograph of andrésen when he was fifteen on the set of death in venice taken by david bailey is a major reason why i picked up a camera and started shooting. that fleeting moment of youth and beauty and everything that's worth living for in this lifetime, just fit into that perfect split second, cannot be rehearsed or choreographed ... and then poof! gone like a shooting star
