Exhibition ‘Myself and I’

STUDIO HESTER 12:00 until 18:00 Saturday 28 January 2023 t/m Tuesday 28 February 2023

13 double portraits of young people and their world

In these portraits of young people between the ages of 14 and 18 I first searched for an image that captures the real person. In the studio, without makeup, wearing a neutral white shirt, their wet hair combed backwards. For the second image I asked them to present themselves in their favourite space. I gave them complete control. The combination of the two images surprises. Sometimes it seams as if you’re looking at two different people.

Hester van de Belt (1971) has been a portrait photographer for over 20 years, portraying mostly children and young people. She attended the Gerrit Rietveld  Academie in Amsterdam.

Myself and I can be seen from the 28th of January until the 28th of February at the Passage of  De Hallen and in Studio Hester located in the Little Passage.
