Kim, Supermodel
Project info

I wanted to photograph drug addicts in my own home. My original idea was that that everybody is afraid for them, so that it would be nice to bring them in my most private space. But when I had Kim in my house, she was not just 'a junkie' anymore. She told me she always dreamed about being a photo model. Afterwards I felt guilt, she really hoped that this could be the beginning of a professional career. One year later I traced her back and I found out she was not using anymore. I told her, we could do her dream shoot together, a real shoot with styling and make-up and lights and everything. She is the same age as me (29 years by then), so I told that we both are too old to become really professional models, but that the photo's of this shoot she can at least keep forever.
