Hendrik Kerstens

Initially Kerstens' photographs were created out of the artist's desire to capture something of the fleeting moments that fade of childhood. The pictures recorded everyday events – his daughter's sunburn, the child's bath. However, one day there was a moment of revelation when Kerstens not only saw her in relation to the events of her own life, but also projected on her his interest in the Dutch painters of the seventeenth century.

I saw this piece by Hendrik Kerstens a few years ago at the NPG in London and I couldn't stop looking at it. I love the Dutch influence.
