Sebastian concentrates on portraiture and landscape photography. In his portraits, there tends to be an element of abstraction: he likes to shift the image from a straight ‘likeness’ to something more expressive. Most of this is done with lighting and in-camera techniques. This abstraction extends to the sitter’s environment, too: emphasizing certain structures, lines, details to make the surroundings construct the mood of the shot. The effect can be almost like a stage set.
