Winter in Bloemendaal

Winter in Bloemendaal


This picture means a lot to me. It's the day and moment I walked for the very first time. It's in Bloemendaal and my mom told me that when I started to walk I almost literally ran up a hill. The location is Bloemendaal, a pretty village near Haarlem with lovely old and very big houses full of character. Another thing that striked me when I studied this picture more closely is that I'm so much like my mother in so many ways. She's wearing the same wintercoat as she wore in the picture I used last week (the one with their dog Sunny) when she was 18 years old. Here she must have been almost 30. I'm also quite thrifty and wear my clothes longer than most people would do...

This is a personal project with scenes from my family's photos drawn on vintage art catalogue pages. Although it's an art project with personal connotation, a lot of people can relate to the sweet and oftentimes funny scenes in those long-ago days.
