”Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” — Pablo Picasso —
In a fictional and staged portrait series of children, I explore the joy, magic and mystery of childhood. At the same time, I am trying to reflect on many aspects of children growing up in our society. In addition to lightness and innocence, growth also includes many challenges and complex stages. I try to take both sides into account and find a balance between them.
This gallery contains at the moment only samples of this series, because this is a large project.
This series is my biggest conceptual portrait photography project so far containing over 60 images. My dream is to make a book out of this project, but let’s see how that goes.
Work in progress but almost done. Started in December 2019.
