In the last days of August I finished the summer project of 2018: The bathrobe series. I am very happy that a lot of people wanted to take part in it, opened up their gardens for me and my camera, took on their gowns and did pose. It was very much fun to pay the late visits and to play around in the green. Have a look if you like!
The bathrobe series (Mariette)
I always try to work on a project in summer, because photography works very well for me as a time preserver of this very lush and luscious season. Emily was another such summer project of yesteryear.
This summer I am working on the Bathrobe Series to catch the feeling of this season in order to keep and cherish it for future colder and darker days. I take portraits of people in their garden wearing a bathrobe. Until the end of August I am collecting pictures for the series. When I finish it I am going to present the pictures on the website of course. For now you can have a little preview at my flickr-stream.
The bathrobe series 6
This summer I am working on a new project: The bathrobe Series. Hortus conclusus. I am taking pictures of people in their own garden. They are wearing a bathrobe, because I very much like the idea of this piece of clothing. It is almost like a harness or armor but soft and private at the same time. I take the pictures very late in the evening when the light of the day is about to bow out. Summer at its best and a good memory for the time when summer will have left us again. I can’t wait what I am going to find.
