Verhoudingen

By stacking slides on top of each other inside a single frame, a new image is formed. The people and places in the images blend and form a new, surreal context.

The title of the work, Verhoudingen, is a Dutch word that has multiple meanings. It can be translated as ‘proportions’; a literal interpretation as the sizes of the subjects in the combined images clash. Another translation is ‘relationships’, the image questions the relationship between the people in the pictures.
