FARMERS SERIES BY LOUISE TE POELE
Louise te Poele 1984, is a photographer-artist who tries to capture a story from a close angle. For Farmers she took portraits of the inhabitants of her own village, in the Achterhoek. “The series started with the photography of my parents neighbours 50th birthday party.” She picks out unusual characteristics, peculiarities that make up the individual. Acquaintances, strangers, family, casual passers-by; she is looking for the eccentric, the outstanding.
