The Dutch portrait photographer Koos Breukel, whose oeuvre is held in high regard both in the Netherlands and abroad, has been photographing his eldest son Casper since he was born, in 2000. This has yielded a series of intimate and moving portraits which not only depict Casper in various phases of his life but which also reflect the bond between father and son. This year Casper turns eighteen: an adult, making his own choices. For Breukel this is the perfect moment to present this unique project to a wider public.

The exhibition shows how Casper has grown, but it also provides an indirect view of the technical and artistic development that Koos Breukel went through in this period as a photographer. As Casper grows we see how Breukel’s preference for the authentic, the unembellished, and the raw gradually undergoes a visual shift. When Casper is a small boy Breukel photographs him mainly in black and white and in a direct, almost documentary style. When Breukel starts working in colour, and makes the change from analogue to digital, his gaze becomes more circumspect and tranquil. He embraces the new artistic possibilities offered by digital technology, which enable him to develop a more painterly approach to the photographic portrait.

Koos Breukel (1962) studied at the School for Photography and Photonics in his birthplace The Hague before devoting himself to portrait photography. He began to exhibit his work at the end of the 1980s, and worked for magazines like Oor, Quote and Blvd. In the 1990s Breukel took on fewer journalistic jobs in order to concentrate on free work, inspired by his great examples, Richard Avedon and Robert Frank. He published a number of photobooks, including Hyde (1996), an intimate photo reportage of the theatre-maker Michael Matthews, who was dying of AIDS, Faire Face (2010), a catalogue which accompanied a retrospective in Paris, and Me We (2013), an autobiographical photo book about the circle of life, which was awarded the Kees Scherer Prize.
