Hellen van meene - Nr. 391
Hellen van Meene (1972 - )
Hellen van Meene (Alkmaar, 1972) graduated in 1996 from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. She quickly rose to international fame with her intimate portraits of young girls balancing on the threshold of adulthood. Van Meene is not concerned with capturing the identity or personality of her models. For that reason, she deliberately does not give her photos titles; no reference is needed to the identity of the people portrayed. Her photos are timeless portraits in which a dreamy, sometimes fairytale-like atmosphere predominates.
