Yvonne Michiels
''Holland'', Portrait of a Girl with Holland, Netherlands

2020

$5,750

About

In her art, Dutch photographer Yvonne Michiels (1966) depicts personal stories about beauty, emotions and mortality. In the Cities-series Yvonne subtly ‘projects’ metropoles from around the world onto her models, emphasizing the contrast between individuality and loneliness on one side and the sometimes overwhelming reality of the contemporary world on the other. Her models are young and fresh faced. As they pose for Yvonne’s camera, she tries to capture not only their strength but their vulnerability as well. In ‘’Holland’’ a dark-skinned female is looking strongly in the camera. In these times of trouble Yvonne found out that Holland is such a beautiful country. The cows, cheese, a lot of bicycles and of course windmills, you will find it all in the hair of this lovely girl. Yvonne uses topical examples from modern society. This results in aesthetic, innovative portraits that are not only fascinating, but also moving. Her technique allows her to imbue her portraits with multiple layers of meaning. Thus, the viewer is continually challenged to look further, to uncover the dimensions hidden in the work. ''Holland'' has an edition of 15.
