A third series of photographs refers to transformation and in two images the archetypal woman role from the male point of view. There are also a number of portraits in which the woman is portrayed powerful or tender and vulnerable. Characteristic is a strong reference to the Dutch Golden Age of painting: Both in topic as in light. In addition, there is always a balanced styling of models.

Still I experience that visualisation process with wonder, similar to the former analog printing process of the predigitale era. Pure Magic if the image appears in the coating”.
