21-Year-Old Photographer’s Strikingly Expressive Portraits Peer into the Soul

21-year-old Cristina Hoch captures strikingly powerful portraits of her friends and family. Achieving a unique high-contrast, low-saturation aesthetic with cool tones, Hoch photographs the beautiful interplay of natural light and shadow on her subject’s faces as they look into the distance or right at the camera. Often using her freckled siblings as the subjects of her most evocative shots, the self-taught photographer manages to produce portraits that are as expressive as they are visually dramatic.
