The first time in 2015 I met Tex, Morris and Soesja they were 3 years old and would turn 4 the next day. After a shoot they would like to have a family portrait. I could not let go of them anymore. And so a new serie started. The 2-egged triplet Tex, Morris & Soesja (2011) live with their older brother Roefie and mother and father in a colorful house in Utrecht, the Netherlands, an average dutch town. Every kid is trying to find his or her own way, looking for their identity. The boys versus the girl. The girl alone. The boy(s) likes to wear the colour pink and dresses. Not always, but It happens and it is ok.

Tijdens de opnamen van het tweede seizoen van de serie bracht fotografe Carla Kogelman, winnares van een World Press Photo Award, bijna tachtig draaidagen door op de set. Van haar werk verscheen het fotoboek ‘En Vele Anderen’, waarin ze het filmproces vastlegt.~Terwijl de acteurs en filmploeg de stad als decor gebruikten voor hun verhalen, zag Kogelman hoe de productie zelf onderdeel werd van de stad. ‘En Vele Anderen’ is een eigentijds en soms surrealistisch portret van de stad en haar bewoners, waarbij fictie en werkelijkheid in elkaar overlopen.

The Feast of Corpus Christi (Latin for Body of Christ) is a Latin Rite liturgical solemnity celebrating the belief in the body and blood of Jesus Christ's Real Presence in the Eucharist. It emphasizes the joy of the institution of the Eucharist. It’s celebrated on the second Thursday after Pentecost. Corpus Christi is a public holiday in some countries with a predominantly Catholic population including, amongst others, Austria. Here it’s know as ‘Fronleichnam’. Catholics take part in a procession through the streets of a neighbourhood near their parish following mass and pray and sing. The Eucharist, known as the Blessed Sacrament, is placed in a monstrance and is held aloft by a member of the clergy during the procession. After the procession, parishioners return to the church where benediction usually takes place.

The rural area of Eastern Cape will be the stage for my photos. I am interested in the daily life of the young Xhosa people who actually live in the rural areas of Eastern Cape, born after apartheid. What does the nowadays community look like? Who are they ? How do they grow up ? What kind of rituals do they (still) have ? How do they relate to their ancestors ? How does this generation look after apartheid? Where do they come from? Which stories do they have ? What are their fears ? What are their dreams ? In my documentary work I always like to get close to people. How close can I get to them ? I am interested in developing a visual language with leaves room for fantasy and interpretation. I want to show a world with no dead end, but with an open end, a story with hope and creativity. A human interest focus for optimism. Looking for cultural context and content.
