Portraits and Cameras 1949-2009
21 cm x 14 cm
In Portraits & Cameras 1949-2009, Hans Eijkelboom creates a 60-year survey of both himself and camera technology.
Beginning the year of his birth, Eijkelboom pairs an image of himself with an advertisement of a camera – also from that particular year.
What results is an “annual” of sorts, a portrait of two things coming of age, growing up and growing older. But while one grows old over time, the other constantly reinvents itself, is born again over and over. And over.
