A modern Dutch Portrait
Surfing the web I came across these interesting portraits by the Dutch photographer Hendrik Kerstens. He started photographing his daughter in 1995 and called the on going photo project "the Paula Pictures". His pictures stand in the old 17th century tradition of Dutch painters and one is reminded of the beauty and solitude in Vermeer's paintings. The modern version of girl with the pearl earrings is girl with an iPod.
