Portraits & Cameras

Born in 1949, Hans Eijkelboom is a Dutch artist who studied visual arts at the end of the 1960s at the Academy of Art and Design in Den Bosch. The Portraits & Cameras series presents 60 images advertising cameras. Each is accompanied by a portrait of the artist, from his birth to the age of 60. These two visual elements are joined together in diptych form featuring the production date of these two images. This work is presented at the Musée suisse de l’appareil photographique de Vevey. Each model with a recreated advert in Portraits & Cameras has been brought out from the collection for the event.
