Book Description Ludion, Antwerp, 2013. Hardcover. Book Condition: VG. White paper boards, black & illus. dust jacket, 135 pp., color illus. Dutch photographer Hendrik Kerstens (b. 1956) has dedicated himself to using his daughter Paula as a model. The result creates "a sense of stillness, poise, and presence: the atmosphere of a theater set where viewers are mesmerized by the performer. They record physical and psychological transitions over time as an ongoing dialogue, a mirroring back and forth between father and daughter. In these enigmatic photographs, Paula is a fiction based on a reality. . The photographs create a feedback loop with history and genealogy, acting like a medium channeling the pat. With an unexpected balance of humor, strangeness, and dignity, Kerstens's photographs question the visible manifestations of ancestry and its invisible, secret origins." (dj).
