This portrait was taken during the artist residency in Gouda in the summer of 2016. Many wonderful artists were working inside a historical orphanage, creating a collaborative exhibition. I was invited to work with long exposure photography and I found this wonderful spot within the main hall in which the natural light wanders through the room, reflecting the subtle colours of the stain glass windows. The portraits were eventually combined together in a photo object called Alone, after the poem by Edgar Allan Poe, in which he reflects on his early life as an adopted orphan.
