Photographer Hendrik Kerstens’ only photo model: his daughter Paula.
As they both share a passion for 17th century Dutch paintings, they bring portraits by the old masters back to life in their photos.

Since 1995, photographer Hendrik Kerstens has been taking portraits of his daughter Paula in the style of a medieval painting.
Despite the simplicity of the materials, this long-term project has yielded some astonishing pictures, some of which are reminiscent of very famous works.
