Paradise Lost

[Photography/ simple prints/ glued in corner of room at Tiny Little Art Collective expo]

These corner pictures form part of a body of work containing pictures, an installation and a short movie entitled Paradise Lost. My family lives in Curacao in the Dutch Antilles. The islands seem happy sunny and like paradise to many of the visitors but many sad stories and undivine secrets are kept under these palm trees. I tried to capture the tension of these stories in my images. The pictures of the empty pool are from a neighboring villa that was left a year before I took them cause the owner got shot in a drug crime.
