About the image:

"This is actually a portrait of the 80+ year old twins, Heddy and Hansje. They are not in the picture, yet they are. I witnessed their great symbiotic and precious love for each other. Nothing could come between them. I made this image in Heddy's snow-white home. The lamb symbolizes (their) pure love and the fragility of human existence."



Vivian Keulards (1970) has been a conceptual portrait photographer for 14 years. In her younger years she loved to spend time in the darkroom. She also gained a master's degree in communication science, where she mainly focused on visual culture and imaging. Vivian's series are narrative, often accompanied by interviews and/or text. Preferably about children, adolescents and people who can use an extra voice in society. She works on commission, but also on one or two projects of her own. Sometimes together with other artists from the world of theater, ceramics or poetry. Her work has been published, collected and rewarded internationally. And she published two photobooks.


"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see", is her favorite quote, by philosopher Henry David Thoreau. How do you see the world? Vivian breaks taboos and makes difficult subjects open for discussion. Subjects that are close to her heart.
