Rika & Helena Christensen – A Private Moment

Widely regarded as one of the world’s most recognised faces and now respected as a leading photographer, Danish born to a Peruvian mother and Danish father, it was Helena’s passion for photography which was the catalyst for her modelling career. “Modeling, in the beginning, was for me a means to travel – to see the World and perhaps fund my true passion for photography, luckily it went well and I have been able to combine both, often shooting whilst I am away on modelling or design work.”
