I am sure I mentioned the beautiful photos of Hendrik Kerstens on my blog before but can’t find it in my older posts. Anyway here he is again …
When Hendrik Kerstens decided to dedicate himself entirely to photography in 1995, he turned to a model very near at hand: his daughter Paula.
He wanted to document all the important moments in her life, to ‘be there’, to capture something of the fleeting moments that fade from memory all too quickly.
“One day Paula came back from horseback riding. She took off her cap and I was struck by the image of her hair held together by a hair-net.”
“It reminded me of the portraits by the Dutch masters and I portrayed her in that fashion.”
After that Hendrik started to do more portraits in which he refers to the paintings of that era.
