I shot this series of images in February, it took me some time to scan and develop the negatives, but here they are at last. I hope you like the story, I loved making it.
A big thank you to Rachel, for being a very patient model, on this cold and dull day. To Nathalie, for being my assistant, model hairdresser, camera-crew and guide. To Home Providentia, for giving me another opportunity to shoot at this unique location.
All images taken on Rolleiflex 3.5 camera with Kodak TMax100 and TMax400 film. Reproduced with a Canon 5Ds and Canon 100mm F2.8L IS macro, developed in Lightroom and Photoshop.

thank you for watching
Often I try to find out what drives the women to come over to my studio and do a shoot with me. This helps me to decide what kind of shoot they want, what kind of images they would like to go home with.
C. told me “I like beautiful photography, it might be a little vanity, or that ‘little twist’ of mine, the will to pass the boundaries of conformity, … I expect to see myself different than what the mirror, or my mindset want to make me believe.”
after she received the images, the message I got back:
Waauw, what a nice surprise. Thank you for these wonderful images. Sure you may publish them on your blog, they are fantastic.
thank you for watching,
A 10 minutes behind the scenes video from our shoot in Hallerbos.
Some parts are english spoken, in-video conversations are mainly dutch, without subtitles, but nevertheless great to look at. 😉
thanks to Martine and Raf for filming
