The artist

Robert Van Der Hilst, born in 1940, was born in the Netherlands where he trained in photography at the Fotovakschool in The Hague until 1959. From the age of 20, he started his professional career and undertook a long series of voyages in over 66 countries (Mexico, Cuba, China, Japan, etc). He thus produced a considerable amount of photo reports that were later exhibited and published in well-known books and magazines such as Geo, Stern, Elle or Vogue magazine.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

This photograph was taken in 1972, in the small city of Cuetzalan, located in the State of Puebla in Mexico, during a pagan ceremony by the native Nahuatl people. Dutch photographer Robert Van Der Hilst constituted a gigantic family photo album by travelling to over 66 different countries. His photographs draw together inhabitants from many different backgrounds, captured in their everyday lives, on the occasion of traditional celebrations, or in their private life. With silence and stillness, he manages to capture the most authentic and memorable slices of life, far from the usual representations. The subjects photographed are showcased through a lateral light that is no doubt inspired by the Dutch pictorial tradition, and which sheds light on the diversity of colours and textures. Rich in contrasts and emotions, his works document the various lifestyles and private lives of the people he meets, in a contemporary and personal manner.
