One and a Half Meter
Texts by Bill Kouwenhoven
The title of this work refers to the radius which defines his closer environment of people. About his work he says: ‘I collect the portraits of the people around me. I map and document those who are close to me in one way or another (I collect memories). Slowly I will get to everybody. Relatives or friends, the important thing is that the photograph can be the symbol of my relationship to them. Or the relationship of the people in the photograph. Or that personal secret, one’s eyes may reveal. I capture a moment, the magic of which lies in trust; intimacy and photography, in other words, the story of love, friendship and identity.’
