Hoofden bij de kapper

Eigen werk / Personal work, 1994/1999
(9 foto’s in portfolio)

Foto’s gemaakt op het kwetsbare moment dat de kapper je voor de spiegel zet, na het wassen van je haar.
Daar zit je dan. Jij, alleen met je eigen hoofd dat wordt omringd door nat sluik haar, gespiegeld onder hard tl licht. Kun je je op zo’n moment, dat je eigenlijk het liefst ontkent, laten fotograferen? Zie je die ontkenning dan terug op de foto?

Pictures made at the vulnerable moment when the hairdresser puts you in front of the mirror, after washing your hair.
There you are. Just you, alone with your head lined by wet straight hair, mirrored under harsh fluorescent light. Can you let yourself be photographed, at such a moment that you actually prefer to deny your presence? Is that denial visible in the picture?

Life expectancy of the prints is up to 200 years, or even more.   More information on our prints page.

Our mounted fine art prints are framed with a classic and elegant solid wood profile, available in either black oak, light oak or white maple. All frames include Schott Mirogard® museum quality glass. This is an anti-reflection, completely transparent glass that UV protects the print and minimises reflection.
