The violinplayer and his ladies
The inspiration for my portraits comes from the Baroque painting combined with contemporary aspects. I especially like the scarce lighting that was so beautifully used by the painters from the Golden Age, such as Rembrandt and Vermeer. With my photos I want to tell a special story that tells about a unity or similarity between child and animal. This creates an almost surreal Baroque atmosphere.
