Rineke Dijkstra, 1992

Dijkstra usually realizes series of portraits of a single person. Her famous series “Beaches” was realized from 1992 to 1996; its images represent adoloscents in their bathing suits standing on the beach and show the insecurity and the awkwardness these young people feel about their changing bodies. [https://photographersproject.wordpress.com/2011/08/26/rineke-dijkstra/] Dijkstra creates photographic series of people in related settings (or the same person over time) to highlight physical and emotional similarities, as well as marked differences. Unlike many post-modern photographers who adopt a directorial approach to photography, she attempts to make her subjects less conscious of the camera. Each shot made with her large-format camera takes a long time to set up, which discourages her subjects from holding a pose or particular facial expression.
