Paul Kooiker - Untitled (nude)

In light of the 2018 Year of the Baroque, the Photography Museum in Antwerp is organising an exhibition dedicated to the work of Paul Kooiker (the Netherlands, °1964). His work is characterised by 'observation', voyeurism, shame and distance. He uses the old traditions as a starting point and questions the relationship between the artist and model. This project sees him make a unique and one-off trip into the Baroque style of the 17th and 18th century.
