A photobook to come! Hester …

A photobook to come! Hester Scheurwater (1971) studied monumental art at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague. Under the guise of self-portraits, she investigates and critiques the role of women as a sex object. Photographs of herself posing before a mirror reflects both Scheurwater’s inner thoughts and outward appearance. “The mirrored self-images are my way of reacting on the imitated and fake media images, which are constantly calling upon our imagination, without intending to be taken too seriously, ” she explains. “ I try to deconstruct this call’s effect with my reactions by switching the ‘subject-object’ relationship, without being victimised by it.” Scheurwater’s work is well known for its sexual explicitness. Scheurwater also teaches video art at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague.
