PERPETUAL STILLNESS

 series started 2016

In Perpetual Stillness Arwe crosses the boundaries between traditional portraying and contemporary portrait photography. The portraits are made in a dutch tradition with a modern twist. Perpetual Stillness reminds us of the paintings by the old Dutch masters. The lighting, colors and compositions we see are all similar to the works of Rembrandt and Vermeer. Only model Anne’s nose piercing gives away we are looking at modern day woman. Perpetual Stillness investigates if a portrait holds its own identity through the passing of time. Can a portraits identity really be everlasting?
