Pregnant women at the beginning. You need to take your time for this book. Not only for the just under 400 pages but as well because you have to overcome temptation of abandoning or labeling the book too early. If you take time you discover the story of life: embryo, birth, childhood, youth, adulthood, old age, death. In between love and affection.
Koos Breukel shoots people of different ages, close and respectful at once; they are intimate, good, beautiful portraits of celebrities and average people, artists, friends. You can feel the connection between the photographer ans his models. The pictures express closeness and security. They are as you expect life to be – or wish.
