ABOUT THE SERIES
Van Dam met her models in South Africa last February. They mainly spoke about friendship and how powerful and supportive friendships can feel. It felt liberating to the photographer to experience the power of the moment by connecting with powerful souls.
The photos have a sculptural and graphic quality. We see extremely strong compositions as well as a timelessness. All kinds of associations tumble through our thoughts when we look at these images, which nevertheless have a power of their own.
