She has a long career from both film and theatre behind her but for the international audience she is probably mostly known for the Kubrick film “Eyes Wide Shut” (1999).
About the photo shoot
As a fan, I had been striving to take her portrait for a long time. But as with all actors and actresses, they do not necessarily want to be photographed if it is not a PR activity related to an opening of a new play or a film. And besides, I think they have a pretty fully booked private agenda as well. I feel very humble that Marie would find the time for this.
The set up for this photograph was simple with window light as the only source of light. The final result has an old grainy film style to it which I like and remember from the Kodak Tri-X days.
