Extensive photo editing with publisher. Supervised printing. Hardcover, 304 pages, with poster. Published by Rizzoli international.

Photography SPOTTED. Hendrik Kerstens. Dutch photographer Hendrik Kerstens has been photographing his daughter, Paula since 1995.

The austerity of the portrait, its clarity, the stoic expression and often the distinctive “Dutch light”—all bring intrigue and a timeless quality to the images. Kerstens’ unique sense of both subtlety and whimsy produces a beguiling fascination. Wish we knew him way back when…
