Hellen van Meene: The Years Shall Run Like Rabbits

Dutch photographer Hellen van Meene has been much in the news lately, with a show opening tomorrow in Holland, a feature on CNN and this stunning new book from Aperture. Best known for her portraits of young girls, van Meene has been exploring the "awkward beauty of childhood and the self-consciousness of adolescence" for twenty years, according to essayist Martin Barnes. Her photographs "provoke intrigue about their subjects. And they raise questions about the intentions and motivations of their maker and about our role as viewers—questions which are not easily resolved. The ambiguity surrounding their meaning engages our curiosity. Van Meene addresses themes of perennial interst: youth at a stage of rapid transformation; connections between humans and animals; and moments when external events in the real world intersect with the interior, imaginative life." Featured image is "Untitled" (1995).
