The series Victorians is inspired by vintage Victorian photography. The romantic and melodramatic images are enhanced so life-size paintings can be made. Starting point of the process is the vintage photograph after which layer by layer is added to give the series a dreamy and surreal feel.

I was touched by the beautiful photographs I accidentally found on the internet. My hands were eager to do something with it, so I just started to play around. Once I got the result I was looking for I decided to make a series that still increases today.
