Just before her pregnancy leave the lovely Hanke Arkenbout did a photoshoot with me for my new book. She and I went to the beautiful Kralingse Bos in Rotterdam.
Hanke is one of the few people who still shoot analogue, which I think is so fascinating. Instead of just clicking away, she only shoots two films, and she has to be very precise when she clicks. It made the whole process very mindful. She was very calm and focussed. I couldn’t see the pics in between, so I just had to trust her, which I did, of course, I am a big fan of her work, but still… I’m so used to the digital process of checking the pics during a shoot.
Hanke and I both were really excited about the little flowers everywhere in the park, and my new book is about nature, so a lot of those ended up in the cut as well (my dog did too :-).
