PHOTOGRAPHY | Bart van Leeuwen
Today some photos shot by the Dutch photographer Bart van Leeuwen. I read about his enchanting story in the Dutch Vogue and his story as well as the photographs immediately captured me. In the ninetees, he went on a road trip with his – by then – girlfriend, topmodel Apollonia van Ravenstein through the south of Europe, with a stock of couture dresses in their trunk.. And every time they came across a beautiful spot with great lightning, they stopped, Apollonia would rapidly put a dress on and the most gorgeous, raw and real photos would be the result. For example, my favourite, the first photo was taken on a stairs in the Italian city Napels. Right now he is really sick and lives a more balanced life here in Holland.
Well.. ain’t that glamourous? I’m so inspired to go on a roadtrip right now!
