Traces & Omens

Annet van der Voort

A LIFETIME (1998-1999)

A LIFETIME (1998-1999) consists of a number of large portraits of old women and a series of small photographs of beauty queens, which were made in the time that the old women were still young. The still prevailing ideals about beauty and youth are thus placed next to the natural aging process that everyone goes through: an idealized image is linked through time with a face upon which life has left its mark. Is it possible that we are dealing with the same women? With A LIFETIME Annet van der Voort calls up questions about youth, age and beauty. How long can beauty be maintained? What does out mortality do with us?
