Dark, little romantic picture stories. That is what Annick Ligtermoet (1983, Putten) gives us. The photos, on first sight, cause you to falter; what am I actually looking at? The subjects and colours seem mismatched, transported in time. This feeling is heightened by the bygone charisma of the photos, as if they’ve been retrieved from an old, dusty shoebox. This is Annick’s working style, to steer away from reality but still remain personal. Annick graduates this year from the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague and has been selected for the prestigious photo festival. Recontres de la photo d’Arles (July 7-13, France) for her series “The Photos on my Wall’.
