Monica, Series ‘MC1R Natuurlijk rood haar’ by Hanne Van Der Woude, 2007
As every first-year art student knows, red and green are complementary colours and combining them produces huge optical impact. Put a red dot on a green plane and something special happens: the image starts to move and vibrate.
In 2004, Hanne van der Woude eyed the landscape around Nijmegen (a city in the east of the Netherlands, near the German border) with this knowledge in mind. She stood in the floodplain beside the River Waal and thought how she could make the green washlands look even greener. Her mind turned to redheads.
It was the start of a quest to find models with red hair. To begin with, it wasn’t easy. She started to hang around outside primary schools and go up to people in the street; the search gradually turned into obsession.
Three creative women have joined forces to implement a very nice project: Poetry, Photography and Fine Digital Art will be merged to form a gem of art synthesis in a book.

Thomas David is a Photographer from Marseille, France. He published a beautiful series of images by the title of Dust and Dance where he shot a dancer in action – with the action enhanced with Dust spraying off her. Read how he did this kind of photo series and get inspired!
Flamenco (Dust and dance) by Thomas David: “It’s been a while since I saw pictures using flour to create a sort of ” smoke,” which, well lit to make it stand , allowed to highlight the movement . Taking pictures of a dancer doing jumps with it seemed a great way to use the idea. And being in the studio eliminates all the problems of wind, changing light , rain , etc … So here I am proposing the idea to Elodie who very kindly accepted.”
