Valentine special 034 - 039
Nel's daughters have a similar track record as models but this is the first time they posed for me on the same occasion. Mirjam participated in the catwalk at the opening of my first exhibition with "Ladies behind crystal veil" (Vrijhof, Enschede, 2010) and she did two excellent photo shoots for me in 2015 and last winter. Each of the sisters has a highly personal, contrasting posing style so it came as no surprise that Mirjam delivered a Valentine series with a different feel to it. She zooms in on the imaginary handsome man and manages to get his attention briefly. Unable to keep her concentration long enough, she loses the attention of the handsome man. He turns his back on her and walks out, leaving a stupefied and disappointed Mirjam behind. All the posing is good but the expression on her face and the slightly lowered right arm in the final photo are priceless.
