1978 – 1981
Photographs commissioned by the National History section of the Rijksmuseum. The photographs were exhibited in the museum.
Selfportrait: The Womens’s Movement in the 1980’s was published by the feminist Publisher, Sara. In the forward was written “Photographing this awareness of women was for us a very personal and sometimes an emotional experience.”
The women in the photographs, who are fighting for their individual development and for a society in which women are no longer surpressed, we are those women too.
