Shining Star Episode 13 with Cornelia Schmidt - Just People Photo

Listen to the podcast:

Cornelia Schmidt coming from Switzerland (Italian speaking part) and settled in Sweden for decades initially because of love. She started her business as a photographer and portrays stories in her project “Just People” about everyday people. They are all naked as far as not wearing clothing, but their passions are shinning strongly through imagery. Cornelia’s keywords are humor, respect, and incredibly beautiful. The texts and photographs complement each other in telling a story about the magic of the individual, at the same time as they leave a lot of space for the viewer’s reflections.
Why naked? Also, what's the challenge in telling the differences between Nude vs Nudity? Cornelia can go deeper and portray their story because each person decides how much of their body they feel comfortable showing and Cornelia adjust the poses after their wishes.

A documentary about our times
The project will serve as documentation of our lives today. Nowadays people have tattoos, solid bodies that have spent many hours at a gym, or large bodies that wouldn’t go near a gym. They have colorful hairstyles, certain accessories, and icons in their lives. These stories from people from all over the world with different skin colors and different cultures tell us stories about how people today live, what they feel and what values they have. Some stories portray an overwhelming emotion, like sadness and longing. Others portray a strong personal trait or passion, like music or chocolate.
Cornelia humbly sees the individual and works with complete respect for the person she is shooting. Then in her humorous and daring way, she collaborates with the person and they compose an interpretation that honestly portrays the special and unique essence of the individual. Cornelia’s passion for this project will give the book energy and a life of its own.

Listen to Shining Star episode 13 with Cornelia and find out how just people contribute to her personal journey of self-love, Plus for those who still mixed up, Swiss is not Swedes.

Just People is an original concept by Cornelia Schmidt. If you are interested in arranging an exhibition or booking, get in touch with her here:
