Here are the Young Men (Marked) - проект голландского фотографа Клер Фелиси

Это серия триптих-портретов солдат 13-ого Королевского корпуса морской пехоты Нидерландов. Фото сделаны перед, в течение и после службы в Афганистане, в 2009-2010.


I was born in the south of the Netherlands, in the city of Breda, in 1966. I took my first pictures with my brother’s camera at the age of 18. When I developed the film and saw the results, I immidiatly bought a camera of my own. In 1988, after the birth of my eldest son (who is now a marine in the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps) I moved to Amsterdam with my husband. There I studied history at the University of Amsterdam and gave birth to four more children in the coming years.

In 2001 I decided to start my own business in photography, and since then I’ve had a lot of exhibitions and publications with my three so far photoseries: In the forecourt, 2001-2004, Moonstruck/How to disappear completely, 2005, and Here are the young men, 2009-2010. In 2007 I made the children’s book ‘Girl of the Nightwatch’ in cooperation with famous Dutch artist Jan Wolkers. In 2009 I realised the big art project ‘Screenview’: 44 photographs fixed on the screens on the highway A10-West, Amsterdam.
