Fathers and Daughters

11 images Created 21 Dec 2014

These portraits are about the father-daughter relationship. The similarity and contrast between people who are closely related yet of the opposite sex holds a certain intensity which I have looked for in my photographs.

For each portrait the daughter chose the location based upon personal memories from the past. The choice of background and how father and daughter pose together resulted in the following images made between 1997-1999.

This project was partially made possible through the support of the Josine de Bruyn Kops Fonds which enabled me to make exhibition fiber based prints shown at Melkgweg Photographers Gallery, Amsterdam in 2000
