By Hendrik Kerstens, NL, November 2007
This portrait (of his daughter Paula) was made as an ecological comment on the number of plastic bags given away by shops. Kerstens lit and arranged the bag to echo the headdresses often worn by women in Dutch Old Master paintings.
This work is the second prize winner of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2008, National Portrait Gallery, London.
