Portraits of “You, Me and the Others”
The business woman
Anna is a fierce and professional woman, always on the run, always on the phone. She often can be seen hurrying along Wall Street in New York…..but few would guess her secret – that she also likes to flirt with her clients, just a little bit. But shhhh…. her main priority is to make business deals.
Artur has almost completed his degree in history and works part time for the Archaeological Institute. He enjoys science and loves to read. Sometimes he searches for new sources of information, trying to use his new phone, but he does not fully trust such new-fangled methods of research. He is both comic and tragic. He is similar to the famous Dutch comedian André van Duin not only in appearance but in personality.
The fashion designer
Byron comes from Portland and is a bespoke fashion designer whose clothes can be seen in some of the most chic fashion shops in New York. He loves both fashion and photography and the first thing he does when he arrives in a new place is to hit the second hand shops and buy something original. In his leisure time he loves sitting at the bar with a friend, drinking black coffee. The worst insult you give him is to call him a hipster.
The French fashionista and stylist
Josephine travels the world looking for the next trend in fashion. She can be seen in all the world’s famous fashion centres, from Milan and Lisbon to New York and Paris, shopping for her clients …but mostly for herself. She is very rich, thanks to her fashion victim clients!
The visual artist
Juliette likes to think that she belongs to the most avant-garde artistic community in Europe and is currently working on her exhibition, which is inspired by the work of such artists such as Marina Abramovic and Frida Kahlo. One day she would like to be famous just like them, but for the moment she is an impoverished artist and never has any money!
The leather jewellery maker
She loves punk and the freedom to do as she pleases. She makes leather jewellery and accessories for fetish parties, so her house looks like a hunter’s den and is infused with the smell of different leathers. Unfortunately Mimi is allergic to the sun so has to work throughout the night. She also lives alone and has no family or friends. But she does have a pet – a huge frog! Although eccentric, she is very happy person, full of energy and inspiration.
The talented football player
Pablo is a very talented football player, but his parents don´t think it’s a real career. To make his parents happy he´s pretending to study engineering in a university in London, where actually he is training to enter any major football league. Originally from Spain, he loves anything to do with football ……and, of course, pretty girls!
Rafael comes from Portugal, is passionate about nature, adventure, learning other languages and discovering the unknown. He is a professional backpacker, who carries his camera with him at all times. He’s constantly online, sharing his interesting life and escapades.
The young Slavic student of Asian Studies
Zorica is a very curious girl, passionate about many things: books, gardening, photography, languages and all kinds of food. She secretly wishes she had been born in another historical period. Her ambition is to one day become a relationship counsellor.
When not rehearsing and playing at concerts, Sad spends all his spare time taking selfies to put on social media. He is obsessive about the way he looks in them, paying meticulous attention to his clothes, hairstyle and even the background to each the picture. He is the “star” of his own creations, self absorbed and vain.
