Judith van IJken - Projectomschrijving

Judith van IJken

Bekend is made as a reaction to the development of ‘Reality Television’ in the Netherlands.The program Big Brother was the start of many television programs showing ordinary people doing ordinary things and by that receiving their 15 minutes of fame. Recognition seemed to play an important part in the fame of a person and I decided to photograph my friends as if they were Hollywood stars. In posing like a star the portrets of my friends entered this area between the known and the unknown. Bekend is presented as a poster turning my friends into famous people.
