HENDRIK KERSTENS: PAULA -- SILENT CONVERSATIONS. Ludion, Antwerp, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Abrams, New York. 136 pp. with 60 ills. (52 col.). 31 x 26 cm. ISBN 9781419710643 In English.
Publisher's description: Since 1995, Hendrik Kerstens has been photographing his daughter, Paula, creating moving portraits in the spirit of Vermeer. His images are now in museums around the world and have inspired tastemakers as diverse as Elton John and Alexander McQueen. (McQueen used Kerstens's now-iconic portrait Bag as the invitation for his fall 2009 collection.) Here, Kerstens lovingly portrays Paula as a self-possessed young woman (with a sense of humor), as well as projecting onto her his fascination with the Dutch Master painters of the 17th century. The resulting portraits seem at once contemporary and timeless. Kersten's beautiful, haunting images, filled with "Dutch light" express both paternal love and a deep respect for craft.
