Art The Hague
Joris van der Ploeg:
“I photograph the transformation of young girls on the brink of adulthood. The phase in the evolution of becoming a woman seizes a complexity that will vanish very soon. This moment in time is beautiful, thrilling and vulnerable and needs to be treated with the utmost respect. All my passion for photography is combined in that one moment I shoot the image with utter concentration, passion, love and care."
