Coulisses, photos and collages for studies.

In 2017 I was invited to the fashion show of Ann Demeulemeester in Paris. The show took place in the wonderful Musée de l'Homme and I arrived early.

The photos from that event inspired the work 'coulisses' or how it feels to be waiting in the shadows, ready to step into the light. I made collages from the prints as a first study and to look into the deformations.

All these women are beautiful, but their appearance wasn't my first concern. I liked how the light reflects on their skin and how the shadows shape their faces. There is a softness to them like the early hours of dawn.

These photographs also started the series 'the almost portrait' as they move away from the person and don't focus any more.
